I stumbled on this book several days back after watching Ann Todd in the marvelous black and white classic film, "The Seventh Veil." This powerful romantic film had had a strong influence on me when I was young. I was inspired by the world it revealed (of European art and refinement) in which the heroine, a concert pianist, is dominated and cherished by her mysterious and sometimes cruel Cousin Nicholas (played by James Mason) who trains her to be a great musician while at the same time denying her evidence of his love. ---- I expected this book to be of passing interest, but found myself reading it page by page right through to the end. It is a simply marvelous story, unfolding with restraint and elegance the story of a remarkable life in the arts. Ann Todd acted not only in films, but with the Old Vic in England, and in many many plays. She met and made friends with many fascinating people --- second husband David Lean, and actress Ingrid Bergman to name but two- and she went on to become a maker of documentary films, traveling the world in search of beautiful and exotic subject matter and inspiration. I was sad when the book came to a close, but deeply touched by the writing, by the author's humble reflections on the meaning of life, on her many spiritual experiences as well as her travels. Just a beautiful book really. I'm thankful there are many used copies out there, and I hope somehow this book is taken up again, reprinted as an attractive paperback and made available to a new audience. There is much here to interest many. Now I must go in search of Miss Todd's documentary films.

Ann Todd starred with James Mason in "The Seventh Veil", one of the most successful British movies of the 1940's. I've been intrigued with Miss Todd ever since, knowing that she and Mason had a loving affair for many years during and after this film was made. Since this book was written before his death, Todd doesn't go into that; she only began to speak publicly about their relationship after his death. However, her life and career, which never really took off, was nice to read about and makes a good read for those of us who like autobiographical books. Very nice.
