Details: Product Description ‘A wonderful account of a life filled with far more ups and downs than its subject’s languid demeanour ever suggested.’ - Miles Jupp Even if the name doesn’t ring a bell, you’d recognise David Tomlinson’s face – genial and continually perplexed, he was Mr Banks in Mary Poppins, Professor Browne in Bedknobs and Broomsticks and Peter Thorndyke in The Love Bug. To many, he’s the epitome of post-war British comedy. But at times his life was more tragedy than comedy. A distinguished RAF pilot in the Second World War, his first marriage was to end in horrific tragedy and his next romance ended with his lover marrying the founder of the American Nazi Party. He did find love and security in his second marriage, but drama still played its part in his life – from the uncovering of an earthshattering family secret to the fight for an autism diagnosis for his son, up against the titans of the British medical establishment. Tomlinson may have died over twenty years ago, but his star continues to shine. In Disney’s British Gentleman, Nathan Morley reveals the remarkable story of one of Disney’s most beloved icons for the very first time. Review A wonderful account of a life filled with far more ups and downs than its subject’s languid demeanour ever suggested. --Miles Jupp About the Author Nathan Morley is a journalist and author based in Nicosia, Cyprus. He is passionate about twentieth-century European history and has written for a variety of broadcasters and publications, including The Voice of America, Deutsche Welle and Vatican Radio, as well as writing the book Radio Hitler: Nazi Airwaves during the Second World War. He was the recipient of a New York Festivals Radio Award for a series of radio interviews with entertainers including Sir Norman Wisdom, Dame Vera Lynn and Eartha Kitt.
