His idiosyncratic style of acting in films such as The Belles of St Trinian’s endeared him to a cinema-going audience desperate to escape the day-to-day dreariness of an invasive, bureaucratic post-war Britain. In private, he was a curiously contradictory character, prejudiced and yet tolerant, thoughtful but sometimes inconsiderate. Sim would not give autographs, let alone interviews!

I enjoyed the book.

This is primarily due to the fact that he shunned the public eye and would not give interviews. There is also only a handful of pages devoted to "Scrooge" which will upset fans like myself who wanted to know more about this production.
