Product Details


The life and good times of one of the world's favourite songwriters. If you've ever hummed a popular film or stage song from the mid-1950s on, the chances are you've been humming one of Leslie Bricusse's. The man behind songs such as "Talk to the Animals," "Goldfinger," "Feeling Good," and "Pure Imagination" has been celebrated throughout the music industry. The result is a string of awards to his name, including a GRAMMY®, a couple of Oscars (as well as ten nominations) and eight Ivor Novellos. Leslie's story of talent, determination, and a little bit of luck will take you on a fascinating journey from humble beginnings to dizzying heights. Over the years, Leslie has collaborated with a dazzling array of stage and screen stars, including Rex Harrison, Peter O'Toole, Albert Finney, Richard Attenborough, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Julie Andrews, Roger Moore, Liza Minelli, and Peter Sellers, and of course his sensational songwriting partnerships with Anthony Newley, as well as with composers Henry Mancini, John Williams, and John Barry.
