David Niven.. the consummate gentleman
David Niven spent 50 years as a Hollywood actor and brought joy to his fans on screen as well as to his personal friends. Ever the great story teller he wrote two great biographies ...one about himself called "The Moons a Balloon" and a bio of the Hollywood he was apart of in "Bring on the Empty Horses". He was a superb actor and a true gentleman. Hes worthy of remembering as one of our fabulous founding fathers of the Golden Age of movies. David Niven 1910-1983.
David Niven..one of the GREATS!
Wonderful in everything he was in...even if the movie itself wasnt a number 1 hit. Warm, charming, witty and handsome are but a few words to decribe the great David Niven. He is missed by one and all.
Always the Gentleman
Personal likability goes a long way on the screen...and Niven combined it with a certain gentlemanly air and suavity to make characters that, if not beloved, were amusing, witty, and often just plain pleasant to watch. I don't think one could rank him with the greatest of actors in either comedy or tragedy....or in high drama, but his longevity attests to his considerable personal charm. Niven was an actor who become familiar to the public....with neither great highs nor great lows, he was a journeyman entertainer. Personal tragedy struck him early in his career, with the accidental death of his beloved young wife...a tragedy from which he never fully recovered.
