[small remainder stamp (the little S&S man) on bottom edge, no other significant wear; jacket slightly dog-eared at top of spine, otherwise shows only light handling wear]. (B&W photographs) A biography of actor George Sanders, who committed suicide at the age of 65 because he was "bored" (although he clearly was suffering from depression), by a close friend and fellow actor. From the jacket: "a splendid examination of a complex and fascinating personality [and] a touching and extraordinary book about the friendships in a group of exceptionally gifted, talented and charming people: Sanders, mercurial, quixotic and moody; Benita Hume, Ronald Colman's widow, who eventually married Sanders; and Brian Aherne himself, not to mention a cast of equally distinguished players."
