Daniel Massey
Daniel Massey
TALL, lean and strikingly handsome, with a languidly caressing voice, the versatile and enormously talented actor Daniel Massey displayed remarkable range in a long and distinguished career in film, television and, primarily, theatre, both in New York, where he starred in such shows as She Loves Me (1963) and Taking Sides (1995), and London, where his work embraced plays classic and modern, revues and musicals. The son of the famous Canadian actor Raymond Massey and the actress Adrienne Allen, and the godson of Noel Coward, he was born in London in 1933 and educated at Eton and King's College, Cambridge (where he acted with the university's Footlights Club). After two years in the Scots Guards he decided to follow in his parents' footsteps, appearing at the Connaught Theatre, Worthing, in Agatha Christie's Peril at End House. He made his London debut at the Cambridge Theatre in 1957 with an outstanding performance as a gauche young American aristocrat in The Happiest Millionaire, a delightful comic portrayal which earned the cheers of first-nighters and rave reviews. The same year, he made his adult screen debut (as a boy he had had a role in Coward's In Which We Serve) in Girls at Sea and the following year he displayed his song and dance ability in the revue Living for Pleasure starring Dora Bryan (who named her oldest child, adopted during the run, after him). One of the show's highlights was Massey's smooth rendition with Janie Marden of the Richard Addinsell/Arthur Macrae duet "Love You Good, Love You Right", and it led to the starring role in the Wolf Mankowitz musical Make Me An Offer (1959). With a stylishly witty performance as Charles Surface in John Gielgud's revival of The School for Scandal at the Haymarket in 1962, Massey demonstrated his versatility, and throughout his career would prove equally adept in musicals, dramas, comedies and classics. In 1963 in New York he created the role of Georg, the young salesman conducting a pen-pal romance with, unknowingly, his own shop assistant colleague (Barbara Cook), in the musical She Loves Me, now regarded a classic though it initially ran for only nine months. "When we came to the last performance," said Massey later, "I cried right through the show . . . perhaps because it is so rare in one's work that one can persuade oneself you say, 'Hey, that was good.' " He returned to London to play Mark Antony in Julius Caesar (1964) at the Royal Court, then starred in Neil Simon's comedy Barefoot in the Park (1965), as Captain Absolute in The Rivals (1966) and Jack Worthing in The Importance of Being Earnest (1967). He returned to musicals with Popkiss (1972) in London and a stage version of the film Gigi (1973) in New York, though neither was a great success. Sporadic film appearances included The Entertainer (1960) and Moll Flanders (1965), and in 1968 his performance as his own godfather Noel Coward in Star!, the film biography of Gertrude Lawrence, was indisputably the best thing about the film, winning him a Golden Globe Award as Best Supporting Actor, plus an Oscar nomination. Coward himself wrote after seeing it, Daniel Massey was excellent as me and had the sense to give an impression of me rather than try to imitate me. He was tactless enough to sing better than I do, but of course without my special matchless charm! In fact, Massey both sang well and purveyed a lot of charm, and had the film been more successful it might have led to more prolific screen work. Instead, he concentrated on the theatre where his Lytton Strachey in Peter Luke's Bloomsbury (1974), and Othello in Birmingham (1976) and a memorable Rosmer in Rosmersholm (1977) found him successfully tackling weightier roles. Joining the National Theatre, he played in The Philanderer (1979), The Hypochondriac (1981) and won the Swet award as Best Actor for his John Tanner in Shaw's Man and Superman (1981). Two seasons with the Royal Shakespeare Company (1983-84) included works by Shakespeare, Saroyan (The Time of Your Life) and Granville Barker (Waste). "The Shaws, the Shakespeares and the Chekhovs are meat and drink to me," Massey stated. "It's the ambiguities in roles that are so important." In 1987 he played the tortured hero Ben in the London production of Follies, introducing a new song written for the character by Stephen Sondheim, "Make the Most of Your Music". Massey's own private life had its share of anguish. His parents divorced when he was six, and his mother, a noted beauty and a major star, gave glittering parties but was cold to him. Massey later described her as "an evil woman, a psychopath", comparing her emotionally with Myra Hindley; such criticism totally estranged him from his actress sister Anna. ("It's not Anna's, it's my problem," he would admit.) Massey did not see his mother for the last 10 years of her life and did not go to her funeral. In the mid-Fifties he married the actre
Captain Vancouver: North-West Navigator
Captain Vancouver: North-West Navigator
A review by Phillip Taylor. VANCOUVER’S REMARKABLE TRAVELS It’s a delight to hear that the first full scale biography of Captain Vancouver had been commissioned in 2000 just after 200th anniversary of his death in the village of Petersham. This work has now been reprinted and makes remarkable reading. It’s about a man who is not widely known, but whose exploits exhibited the strengths of patience, determination and perseverance which are such ‘foreign’ considerations to so many today. Vancouver is buried in historic St Peter’s Church yard, Petersham, just up-river from Richmond. He came to this area as a fatally ill man bent on completing his coastal survey work for publication. Coleman’s research is extensive and covers, in some detail, the preciseness with which Vancouver tended his mission. In this gallant story of enterprise and initiative there were difficult moments as events swung from triumph to treachery. Although there is no book index to aid reference, the activities of the nasty stalker, William Camelford, are fairly recounted here from what we know of contemporary accounts. Whatever the actual truth of Vancouver’s hot temper and hard discipline, the reader is always reminded (often vividly) of the realities of His Majesty’s Navy in the late 18th century. My relatives were seafarers and I’m sure that their lot was ‘petty, nasty and cruel’ … but that was the case for so many at that time. A particular mention should be made of Coleman’s sensitive treatment of the killing of Captain Cook. He describes it with care, and the effect on Midshipman Vancouver can be calculated from the narrative in the early chapters. Vancouver cared deeply for the men under his command as any captain would because survival means team-work. This sense of care comes through well and you can measure the feeling that physically back-breaking and monotonous work must have created. From the scene set by Coleman, I can picture well the views these sailors surveyed as they passed the coastline in small boats. Remember, they covered a total of ten thousand miles, much of them by rowing. It puts some of our human activities today to shame because Vancouver brought the best out of those who served under him as his crew. Only one person died (from disease) in the entire four year mission, when ‘The Discovery’ visited the range of settlements listed here- some record! Just take a look at the map in the book and you get to the reality very quickly. This is a great read- I picked it up whilst reading Darwin’s adventures on ‘The Beagle’: an interesting comparison of the two voyages comes across well. Whilst Darwin has immortalized the origin of species for some, Vancouver’s name has been immortalized in both north and south shores of the American Pacific rim. This isn’t just a book for the naval historian; it’s an adventure book of readable workmanship. Get it while stocks last.
