Richard Attenborough and Diana Hawkins have been friends and colleagues for nearly 50 years. Together, laughing and squabbling, they have travelled the world, meeting people and making films.

Richard Attenborough. Entirely Up To You, Darling by Diana Hawkins & Richard Attenborough; page 180; paperback; Arrow Books; published 2009; ISBN 978-0-099-50304-0. "Richard Attenborough's RECORD RENDEZVOUS".

In 2008 we published Richard Attenborough's memoir, Entirely Up To You, Darling, written with his long time friend, publicist and business partner, Diana Hawkins. After the sad news of Richard Attenborough's passing, we have found this gem of a video in our archive of Richard and Diana looking through pictures for the book and sharing his memories. Our favourite line has to be on the writing process and working with Diana: 'It's not sycophantic and boring, it's quite funny and quite abrasive at times. That' s my bi. More details about the book:.

Diana Hawkins has worked with Richard Attenborough for nearly 50 years, first as his publicist, then as his business partner, and finally as his co-producer. Entirely Up to You, Darling is a rambling and unstructured collection of joint reminiscences, probably dictated rather than written. But they make for enjoyable reading, because Attenborough has had such a rich and varied life, Hawkins has a keen relish for character and anecdote, and they are obviously so fond of each other

Richard Attenborough wrote: "Overtly gay long before it was legalĀ .

Richard Attenborough wrote: "Overtly gay long before it was legal, Noel Coward was a witty, clever, powerful and wealthy ma. .After we'd talked a while, Noel told me I'd landed the part of the young stoker. Boys in Brown, 1949, starring Richard Attenborough. Gays, too. I can assure you nobody ever gave it a thought if you were jewish or gay, just if you were the right man for the job. The Attenborough's were of old German-Jewish stock, as many Londoners were. Famous for more than sixty film performances, beginning in wartime with In Which We Serve and continuing with such classics as Brighton Rock, The Angry Silence, 10 Rillington Place, The Great Escape, Miracle on 34th Street and Spielberg's Jurassic Park, Richard Attenborough has always fought tenaciously for the survival of British cinema.

Of course, Richard Attenborough is an excellent writer, and the book reads very well as I had already expected. Sir Richard Attenborough and Diana Hawkins. Richard Attenborough, Diana Hawkins. There were no surprises here. The book starts with the background story to the making of the film Gandhi, and right from the start, it is captivating. On page 11, he writes about his recollections at age eight of seeing Mahatma Gandhi on newsreels. I found that fascinating.

Diana Hawkins, Richard Attenborough. Richard Attenborough and Diana Hawkins have been friends and colleagues for nearly 50 years. Attenborough is the octogenarian celebrity peer, happily married since 1945, describing a lifetime of ceaseless activity as film star, director, producer, company chairman and indefatigable campaigner

Friends and colleagues for nearly fifty years, Richard Attenborough and Diana Hawkins team up to write a frank account of their unlikely partnership and his extraordinary life.Their story begins in 1983 with a famously weeping Attenborough accepting two Oscars when his film Gandhi broke all previous records to win a total of eight Academy awards. Hawkins, 67, is Attenborough’s publicist, confidante, co-producer and long-term business partner.Here, Attenborough reflects on the highs and lows of a long life, both in and out of the public gaze. Few know, for instance, that he once risked prison on a matter of conscience or that, as an air gunner cameraman, he took part in bombing raids over Germany during World War Two.More poignantly, Attenborough finally breaks his silence about his long-running friendship with Princess Diana, and the tsunami tragedy which robbed him of his elder daughter and granddaughter in December 2004.

I have most of Lord Attenborough's movies from the time he was just a young seaman in "In Which We Serve" so this book was a must for me. He was one of the greatest actors, directors, producers this world will ever see. And a decent, kind man. His work will live on forever.
If you are mad about British movies and love to read about the actors and actresses, or if you like to read about the history of film and theater, this book is a must.

Great warm, amusing biography of a life in the movies but filled with real life companions and connections.

I loved this memoir of Richard Attenborough, written with alternating segments by himself and his long-time friend and publicist, Diana.Hawkins.

Book arrived in less than a week. Was in perfect order just as the seller had described. Would use this seller again.

What a disappointment ! This is a very detailed account of the business of making/acting in movies. The areas of human interest, like his family taking in Jewish refugees, the death of his daughter and her family merited a small paragraph. Unemotional , and distant, the writer failed to engage my interest. A dull read.

I've had a wonderful week immersed in this excellent book, which I found almost impossible to put down until I'd finished it!
Richard, in tandem with his long-time collaborator Diana Hawkins, takes us on a breezy & illuminating journey through his lengthy & illustrious career as actor, director, producer & motivator.

I loved how the style jumped around between certain eras around the central timeline; the memory of one thing sparking another, & how his unflagging years of persistence in taking Ghandi to the big screen finally came to fruition - re-launching his career into the next era.

The book is filled with many personal insights & highlights, as well as the expected memoirs on his life & the film industry as a whole (& gives a sobering account of the challenges of simply getting a film off the ground from scratch & finding a backer in the cynical world of Hollywood). The lengthy process of bringing Ghandi to the screen, despite years & years of setbacks, is a fascinating document of one man's determination to never give up.
He meets many inspiring & powerful people along the way, & never gives in when all hope sometimes appears to be lost in the pursuit of his dreams.

I've read a good many autobiographies, but this is definitely one of the most enjoyable I've come across.
The writing styles of the two authors compliment each other perfectly, & you can see why Richard & Diana's personal & professional relationship endured for so many happy & successful decades.
There's personal tragedy too at the loss of his beloved daughter & granddaughter in the Thailand tsunami of 2004, & his surprising personal friendship with Princess Diana is also revealed too.
The accompanying photos throughout the book are excellent as well.

I feel so privileged that Richard has documented his life in this way, & allowed me a fascinating window into his life, work & personal world. These are the times!
