Publisher's Summary

In this second installment of Terence Stamp's captivating memoirs, Stamp takes us right into the heart of the swinging 60's. From his Academy Award nomination for Billy Budd to his coming of age under the direction of the legendary Federico Fellini, the "marmalade skies" are the limit. With beautiful women and beautiful people from London to California, Stamp captures the spirit of the decade. He was the face, the man to be seen with. And then the decade ended, along with his romance to famous model Jean Shrimpton. While the Beatles play their last concert on the rooftop of the Apple building in Mayfair, Stamp, unemployed and broken-hearted, boards a plane for a solo pilgrimage to India.

Great book, brought to life by the narrator

Where does Double Feature rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's one of the best for sure; I loved the printed book when I read it about 15 years ago and it's such a treat to hear it read out by the author.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Double Feature?

His description of meeting and falling in love with Jean Shrimpton is told as if he is reliving it... with all the ecstasy and subsequent pain that it brought.

Which character – as performed by Terence Stamp – was your favorite?

His impression of the early Michael Caine is great, avoiding the clichés and giving a real impression of how he was in those days.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

How to have it all at once... and then discover it's not enough.

Any additional comments?

Stamp describes his life as if it happened to someone else, with tenderness, but also the maturity to know that he was a bit of a fool in those days. He is alternately complimentary and mocking about his younger self which gives the book a funny edge, while he definitely savours reliving all the high times he had as a young man.

It's a book by someone who loves life, above all.

Great Second Instalment

I could listen to this man reading from the telephone book.
The second instalment takes us through the swinging sixties, and his rise to fame.
A revealing look at life behind the wall of fame, and how intangible it can all be.
By the end of the sixties he was out of a job.
Terence Stamp was called "the most beautiful man alive," only to be discarded at the end of the decade with the words, "we're looking for a younger Terence Stamp."
Cant wait for the third instalment.
