Through Grown-up Eyes

Living with childhood fame

by Robert Henrey


Bobby Henrey was eight when he was improbably chosen by film director Carol Reed and producer Sir Alexander Korda to star alongside Sir Ralph Richardson in The Fallen Idol in 1948. The film was an instant success and his performance was singled out for critical acclaim and it remains one of the classics of British cinema. Through Grown-up Eyes is a remarkably moving and candid account of coping with childhood stardom and the vicissitudes of later life in the USA, tragedy and loss. It is ultimately about survival.
