Now, this fascinating biography lays bare the life of British entertainment's most lovable rogue. Featuring never-before-published correspondence with Sid's friends, family and colleagues, and exclusive tales from his inner circle, Robert Ross shows how a Jewish boy from South Africa grew up to become the archetypal wise-cracking cockney, and explores the many facets of a man who was variously a war hero, serial seducer, inveterate gambler and comic icon.
