"In 1967 Antonioni's Blow-Up was received by stunned audiences across the world. It was one of the most beautiful and enigmatic pictures to capture the zeitgeist and by the end of the Sixties, David Hemmings, who played the central role, was one of the biggest movie stars in the world. He appeared subsequently in a string of movies, including The Charge of the Light Brigade and Barbarella. It was while he was making Camelot in Los Angeles that he met his second wife, the beautiful Texan film actress Gayle Hunnicutt. Between them they filled column inches for the next six years." "From ordinary beginnings, with a doting mother and a father bitterly determinded to see his son succeed where he had failed, Hemmings was launched early into an extraordinary life at the age of 12, when he was chosen by Benjamin Britten to sing in his new operatic version of The Turn of the Screw." "After this extraordinary experience, a normal life was impossible and, going on to stage school in London, David was soon appearing regularly in films and on television. His relationship with his father, though, had deteriorated beyond repair, and he was left to look after himself. By the age of 17, David was working in repertory theatre. He was married for the first of four times and a father by 20. When he was cast in Blow-Up, he was just 25, with over 30 films already under his belt. A man who always lived life to the full, perhaps it is not surprising that he was still filming the day he died in early December 2003. By that time he had over 100 film and television roles to his name and he had been living happily with his fourth wife Lucy for the last nine years."--BOOK JACKET
