商品の説明

内容紹介

The acclaimed biography of Laurence Olivier is reissued to coincide with the centenary of his birth.

Laurence Olivier was both an enchanter and a force of nature. In The Real Life of Laurence Olivier, Roger Lewis goes beyond the magical illusions the actor created, to tell the truth about the man’s sexuality, ambition, revenges, power, preoccupations and achievements.

Most of all, Olivier’s life and work become a love story — the tale of the relationship with Vivien Leigh, who was destroyed by the extent of her passion for him, as he himself was cast into a frenzy of guilt and disillusion.

レビュー

“Forget the standard show business ‘life,’ Lewis has reinvigorated the genre.”
City Life

“Confirms Lewis as the most ferociously attentive describer of stage- and screen-acting since Ken Tynan in his pomp. It’s magnificent….”
New Statesman

I selected this book at A Public Library. There were a couple of other books about Laurence, but this appeared to be the most interesting.
The writer is obviously homophobic, so if you are gay prepared to be at least annoyed and probably offended on several ocassions.

He also makes no bones about the little, to no, respect he has regarding the ability/talent of Vivien Leigh. Not being a particular fan of Ms Leigh, I feel that I can fairly objectivly state that for the author to ignore the pretty obvious fact that the 3 hours of "Gone With The Wind" is basically pretty much held together by her sterling performance of Scarlett. And also she won her 2nd Oscar for her great-and underated( due to the now over emphasis on Marlon Brando's fine work) Blanche in " A Streetcar Named Desire".

He also holds no respect for Merle Oberon in "Wuthering Heights".

The actual format of the book also makes it quite a difficult read, it doesn't flow.

What he does write is fairly interesting- although good taste makes me wonder, was it really neccessary to inform us of the size of Mr Olivier's cock? In case curiousity about this makes you rush out to buy this let me save you the trouble -it was not big.

This is a better book than Lewis's biograpy of Peter Sellers, if only because it is much, much shorter. But the some of excesses that marred the prior book are here, too. Lewis suffers from foodnote-itis; they can go on for pages and break up the rhythym of reading the book terribly. Either he should integrate the material into the text or he should use notes at the end of the book. He still can't resist inserting himself into the book and making snide and tedious wisecracks, though compared to the Sellers book, he has definitely toned this element down. But the out-of-left-field rhetorical question habit is worse here. My absolute favourite: When discussing the film of Olivier's "Hamlet", he says, "Finally, am I alone in thinking the curtains of Gertrude's bed are spead like the lips of a giant vagina?" Doh! I rather think you are, pal. Either the aforementioned comment is a put-on, or the editor was asleep at the--forgive me--swatch. Speaking of sex, Lewis doesn't like to speak of it, at least directly. He gives it a series of coy, creepy nicknames: "rumpy-pumpy", " and (another favourite) "the bedspring Sonata". What is it with the British, anyway? (That rhetorical question thing is catching).(P) It is also a bad sign that Lewis can't immediately let go of Sellers, and the first part of the book is loaded with references to him and comparisons to Olivier. Apples and mangoes, friends. (P) But studded throughout these excesses, like jewels in *&%!, is some brilliant writing on Olivier's preformances and what excited him about acting. You will just have to hold your nose to enjoy them. (P) And Olivier was great. He was an indifferent father, a poor husband, a jealous colleague, and a manipulative friend, as Lewis makes clear. His love, his energies, his reality went to acting. He was not one of these modern actors who feel obliged to give dumb interviews about the whorishness of the acting profession, and how it is not really suited to a man. Olivier loved and respected his profession, and this book rightly celebrates his triumphs in unlikely ("The Betsy"), small (his wonderfully hostile and whiney Morarity in "The Seven-Per-Cent Solution"), classical ('Richard III'); modern ('The Entertainer') and comedy ("Moscow Nights"). My favourite Olivier performance is none of the above, however. When I was a teenager, I stumbled upon a television showing of William Wyler's "Carrie" (an adaptation of Dreiser's "Sister Carrie." This is an early fifties movie that was a terrible flop when released and was almost immediately forgotten. Olivier is cast as Hurstwood. His fate is horrifying, but such is the power of the performance Olivier gives, you watch until the very last frame. Sometimes this book can convey in words--fleetingly--what Olivier did on the screen. So, in spite of the author's self-indulgences, I recommend it.
