Jack Cardiff tells the story of his life in films, first as a cameraman and then as a director.
He was one of the first to use the Technicolor film camera, and the book provides a record of how colour cinematography developed in Britain.
He also provides a humorous account of his days on the music-hall circuit during the 1920s and '30s, and anecdotes about his experiences photographing actresses such as Ingrid Bergman, Audrey Hepburn, Ava Gardner, Sophia Loren and Marilyn Monroe.
