Leo 'Rumpole' McKern : an accidental actor by George Whaley( Book )

"This long-awaited biography tells the story of a working-class Sydney boy who left Australian shores in the 1940's and went on to an extraordinary and renowned acting career. In England he become a major Shakespearean actor and made many films. Yet it was the gravelly-voiced, potato-faced Horace Rumpole in the long-running series Rumpole of the Bailey that made him a household name in Britain and Australia. Drawing on conversations with family, colleagues and friends, George Whaley traces the remarkable life of a man with little education and no formal training, who learned to act in public and went on to become one of the best-loved figures on television in Australia and Britain."--Provided by publisher
