Description

More than twenty years after Lowe died in 1982, "Dad's Army" has become a classic comedy series, is regularly repeated all over the world, and has captured yet another generation of enchanted fans. Lowe became an actor when he was a sergeant fighting in the North African desert during WW2 after helping one of his officers build a theatre in Alexandria. On top of his long TV career, which took off when he appeared in "Coronation Street" in 1960, he also appeared as a singer and dancer in three West End musicals, on stage in numerous serious plays and in more than fifty films. For this first in-depth biography of Lowe, Graham Lord has followed in his footsteps all over Britain and interviewed both his sons and other relatives, as well as dozens of actors, friends and army comrades, including all of the surviving stars of "Dad's Army".show more
