original hardback cover for Stephen Lowe's biographical
tribute to his father featured a splendid caricature of
Arthur Lowe as Captain Mainwaring. The
book was also released in Large Print by Isis publishing
sporting this rare two-tone cover.
1997, Virgin books published the biography in paperback,
giving the book a new title and a new photo cover of Arthur
as Captain Mainwaring.
nine years Arthur Lowe entertained Britain as the bumbling,
indignant Captain Mainwaring of Dad's Army. His Comic
genius meant the show became a classic and secured him a
very special place in the British public's heart.
while his long career, which began in an army entertainment
field unit, took him to the heights of British stage, film
and TV success, his home life was considerably more complicated.
Held back by the increasingly erratic and demanding behavior
of his wife, Lowe struggled to maintain his career, health
and tempestuous marriage.
this candid and touching biography, Arthur Lowe's son undergoes
a voyage of discovery. Hugely enjoyable and revealing, this
is nostalgic and deeply poignant biography of one of Britain's
best loved and most fondly remembered character actors.
