Despite his on-screen persona, Niven wasnt always the perfect gentleman. He was insecure both privately and professionally and used people to get ahead. But he did, he said, at least try to be a decent man.

He knew he often failed, although it isnt easy to find people who ever had a bad word to say about him. In this fascinating biography of the star, Munn looks at the funny stories and the sad underlying truth, from his outrageous days with Errol Flynn and their irrevocable split You always know where you are with Flynn. He always lets you down and numerous affairs with stars and prostitutes, to an attempted suicide, his horrific experiences in war-torn France and the breakdown and blame of his second marriage.

This compelling text includes interviews with his second wife, Hjordis, John Huston, Rex Harrison, Laurence Olivier, Loretta Young (they discussed marriage once), Nivens long-time friend Michael Trubshawe, Peter Ustinov, Ava Gardner and many more.
