From the Back Cover:

Born in Morecambe, Lancashire, the daughter of theatrical parents, Thora Hird first appeared on the stage at the age of eight weeks in the arms of her mother. Humorous and affectionate reminiscences of her childhood form the basis of this first part of her autobiography, originally published in 1975.

We hear how, in 1931, Thora joined Morecambe Rep. Playing a sixty-year-old woman in 'As You Are' she was 'spotted' by George Formby. She was put under contract by Ealing Film Studios and embarked on what was to be a highly successful film career, continued with the Rank Organisation. Later she moved to television where she starred in the highly popular comedy series 'Meet the Wife' and 'The First Lady'.

Thora found time to marry James Scott, whom she met in Morecambe, and to have a daughter, Janette Scott, later to become as well known as her mother.

Witty and packed with brilliant theatrical anecdotes, 'Scene and Hird' is a classic and enchanting showbiz tale.
