This autobiography traces the life of Lew Grade, born Louis Winogradsky, one of Britain's most influential entertainment entrepreneurs. Grade's story begins with an account of his poor childhood as the son of Russian immigrants in London's East End. After a brief spell in the rag trade, he won the National Charleston Championship and decided to become a professional dancer. He subsequently performed in music halls and reviews throughout Europe and his encounters with variety entertainers formed the basis of his highly successful career as a theatrical agent. The story recounts his triumphs on the stage and in television and cinema, culminating in his knighthood.
