Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: 'As time moves on like the waves on the seashore that I love to watch, I realize that there's no going back. I'm just hoping that the Good Lord is pleased with how I have used the talents he invested in me all those years ago.' Dave Thora Hird's life story brings us humorous and affectionate reminiscences, from the early days of being 'spotted' by George Formby to her BAFTA-winning performances for Alan Bennett's Talking Heads. Theatrical anecdotes guide us through her West End successes and film roles, alongside Arthur Askey, Normon Wisdom, Alan Bates and Joan Sims. And she recalls with fondness her well-loved television series, including Praise Be! and Last of the Summer Wine. Widely acknowledged for her work, she also talks bout her wonderful marriage to husband, Scottie, the achievements of her daughter, Janette, and the support of the friends who surround her. For the many people she has delighted over the years, Nothing Like a Dame will be an enduring testament to one of Britain's best-loved personalities.
