Tom Courtenay has also done a terrific memoir DEAR TOM, now in paperback - comprising in part of letters written by his mother to him when he was a student at RADA in London, fresh down from Hull. Its a marvellous read of an actor's development as well as a testament to the love he shared with his parents, and particularly his mother. One cannot recommend this too much.
BB had already been in films before that, as in HELEN OF TROY in '55, its certainly a good story.

English actor Michael Craig (see Craig label) busy in the '50s, a Rank replacement for Dirk Bogarde, co-starring with favourites like Dirk, Susan Hayward (STOLEN HOURS), Monica Vitti, and in films like THE ANGRY SILENCE and Visconti's SANDRA with Clauda Cardinale, and popping up in Losey's MODESTY BLAISE, also played Streisand's Nicky Arnstein (left) in the 1966 London production of FUNNY GIRL which I saw, has also written an engaging memoir on being a young actor and on his long career - he is now in his 80s and retired in Australia - he writes interestingly on working with both Streisand and Julie Andrews (he was her beau in STAR!) and their very different working methods.
Memoirs we would have liked, if they had been written: Lee Remick's, Deborah Kerr's, Stephen Boyd's ...
