    schema:reviewBody ""Peter Sallis is known to millions of viewers as Clegg in Last of the Summer Wine, the hugely popular BBC TV series that has now run for more than three decades. Over the years, his onscreen partners have changed, but even at the age of eighty-five, he is still going strong." "In this memoir, he reveals how he discovered his aptitude for acting in the wartime RAF, and went on to win a scholarship to RADA after he was demobbed. During a long and varied career, he worked with most of the great theatrical figures of the last century, and here he provides vivid portraits of John Gielgud, Ralph Richardson, Laurence Olivier, Orson Welles, Judi Dench and Patrick McGoohan, among many others." "His television career began in the earliest days of the medium, and includes playing the title role in a ground-breaking production of Samuel Pepys' Diaries. There are many hilarious stories from the making of Last of the Summer Wine, including the day that Bill Owen saved his life while making one episode. He is witty and self-deprecating about the vagaries of his work in the cinema, and touchingly surprised by the Oscar-winning success of Wallace and Gromit, the animated comedy series he has voiced from the beginning."--Jacket." ;
