The first ever biography of British film star and stage actor Eric Portman (1901-1969), who appeared in over 40 films and around 100 stage plays.
This includes much original information about his childhood, family, career and private life from people who knew Eric, including nephews, cousins, friends, neighbours, colleagues, acquaintances and fans. There are many never-seen-before photographs and other illustrations, plus private family documents and letters.
