Unhappy Memories

From Silver Spoon, Being Extracts from the Random Reminiscences of Lord Grantley, ed. Mary and Alan Wood (London: Hutchinson, 1954) p. 209. Lord Grantley (Richard Henry Brinsley Norton, 6th Baron, 1892–1954) divided his career between international finance and films. As Managing Director of Pinewood Studios and Chairman of the British Film Producers Association, he was sometimes referred to as ‘The Wicked Uncle’ in the film world because of his monocle and sinister expression. He had a reputation as a witty raconteur. His connection with Shaw began when Gabriel Pascal approached him about the making of the film version of Pygmalion.
