In his outstanding first volume of autobiography, A Postillion Struck by Lightning, Dirk Bogarde retraced his childhood and early experiences on the stage. In Snakes and Ladders, he continues his memoirs, from the trials of army training camp to the greatest challenge of his film career-the role of von Aschenbach in Death in Venice. Here, Bogarde recounts all the ups and downs and the people he encountered-family and friends, actors and actresses, directors and producers-on his way to becoming one of the finest cinematic actors of our time.
