Jack Cardiff tells the story of his life in films, first as a cameraman and then as a director. As he was one of the first to use the Technicolor film camera, the book provides a record of how colour cinematography developed in Britain. Cardiff also gives a humorous account of his days on the music-hall circuit during the 1920s and '30s, and includes anecdotes about his experiences photographing actresses such as Ingrid Bergman, Audrey Hepburn, Ava Gardner, Sophia Loren and Marilyn Monroe.

Cameraman Jack Cardiff photographed some of the most sumptuous color movies of all time. He won an Oscar for his work on Black Narcissus, shot The Red Shoes and The African Queen, and worked steadily as cinematographer and director through the 1980s. In this winning autobiography, Cardiff tells wonderful stories about his collaboration with the great Michael Powell, his work with Alfred Hitchcock the perfectionist and master storyteller, the gruelling experience of shooting jungle locations for The African Queen, his experiences as director on such films as Sons and Lovers, and his intimacy with Humphrey Bogart, Ava Gardner, Sophia Loren, and Marilyn Monroe.
