David Niven, now remembered as one of the most debonair and English of actors, was also a wit and humorist extraordinaire.

In this bestselling volume of autobiography, he takes us back to his childhood days, his humiliating expulsion from school and his army years and wartime service. After the war he returned to America and there came his tremendous Hollywood success in films as varied and acclaimed as Wuthering Heights and Around the World in 80 Days .

Honest, warm and extremely entertaining, The Moon's A Balloon is the compelling story of a great actor and, above all, a great man.

I read good reviews of this. It started off well, with Niven's dry wit, but halfway through was just name-dropping and gossip. So I didn't finish.
