Hollywood hunk and swash-buckler Stewart Granger tells of his leap to stardom in The Man In Grey and his overnight Hollywood success in King Solomon’s Mines. He battled studio bosses, including Howard Hughes, experienced near-fatal accidents in film stunts that he always insisted on doing himself and had very close encounters with wild animals while filming in Africa and India – not to mention the temptation of being thrown together with some of the most beautiful women in the world.  This iconic actor tells his story his way -with frankness, modesty and homeliness.   Known for heroic sword fighting-roles such as The Prisoner of Zenda and Beau Brummell, Granger says: “I always thought I was big until I played opposite John Wayne in North to Alaska!”
