A bright and crisp copy of this autobiography. Signed, not inscribed. Sir Alec Guiness (1914 - 2000) was an English stage and movie actor. His early stage career often included Shakespeare roles. Guiness was a Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve during World War II until he was promoted to Temporary Lieutenant. After the war, he continued on the stage until his acting career started in 1949. He was best known for his role in the Bridge on the River Kwai, as Prince Faisal in Lawrence of Arabia, and as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars Trilogy. This autobiography was the first of three he wrote. It covers his stage career, his film career, his friends and family, his war experiences and his religious beliefs. A well-written and often humorous book.
