Summary:

In this charming memoir, Terence Stamp speaks with affection and humor about a London East End childhood that began when the first bombs were dropped over Bow Cemetery at the start of the Battle Of Britain. Recalling his days in grammar school, when his teacher told him, "You would make a good manager of Woolworth's," and his father, a tugboat captain, said, "People like us don't do things like that (acting)." Winning a scholarship to the Weber Douglas Acting Academy before living in a mews house with Michael Caine while the two scraped for money, rationed food and shared clothes for auditions. Until the screen test for the lead role in Peter Ustinov's Billy Budd, an event that, for Terence Stamp, changed everything.
