Angus McBean: Face-Maker
Adrian WoodhouseISBN: 1846880084;
Drawing from a multitude of direct sources and recorded interviews, Adrian Woodhouse tells the authoritative, unexpurgated story of McBean's dramatic life, from his humble origins in South Wales to his arrest, trial and imprisonment during the Second World War for homosexuality; from his rise, fall and resurgence in the world of photography to his final years in Suffolk. Full of scandal and controversy, rich with previously untold anecdotes and revelations about his famous subjects--who included Vivien Leigh, Laurence Olivier, Maria Callas and the Beatles--Face-maker provides the private and the official portrait of a man who helped define the look of an age.
