Although known primarily as a Hollywood actor, Scottish-born David Niven returned
to Britain at the outbreak of the war and made several very famous films during the
40s. Always delightfully urbane, with a lovely speaking voice, he excelled at
light sophisticated comedy and English types with stiff upper lips. Later character
roles allowed him to show his depth.
His memoirs are well-worth reading as he was also an incorrigable raconteur.
