Book offer: Disney’s British Gentleman –
The Life and Career of David Tomlinson
by Nathan Morley
David Tomlinson died over twenty years ago, but his star continues to shine. Nathan Morley reveals the remarkable story of one of Disney’s most beloved icons for the first time. David Tomlinson starred in My Brother’s Keeper, Helter Skelter and So Long at the Fair. To many, he’s the epitome of post-war British comedy, but at times his life was more tragic than comical. A distinguished RAF pilot in the Second World War, his first marriage ended in terrible tragedy. His next lover married the founder of the American Nazi Party.
He eventually found love and security in his second marriage, but drama still played its part in his life – from the uncovering of an earth-shattering family secret to the fight for an autism diagnosis for his son, up against the titans of the British medical establishment. David himself overcame a childhood stammer, enabling him to enjoy a richly varied 40-year career.
