Although many a star of his generation has written an autobiography, my father never felt inclined to do so. In order to encourage him to talk about his life, I decided to interview him. From 2001 until his death in March 2003, we recorded several hours of conversations during which he opened up to me as he had never done before. My father was a man fraught with many a contradiction. The sheer breadth of his experience was astounding. It included: his search for his biological father. The horror of the war years experienced as a child. The spirit of the Fifties, with its promise of a better future. His meteoric rise to stardom, his accolades and his life in Hollywood. The turbulent days of the Sixties stage roles. His years of crisis. His bisexuality. This film is the document of a tragicomic journey into the world of my father. (Christopher Buchholz)
