    According to Anita Ekberg, he was a violent drunk and she claimed he hit her.

    I've just finished reading this book and was rather disappointed in it. It is poorly written for a start and cheaply produced. When you notice errors about things that you have knowledge of, you wonder about the accuracy of other things. For example, the author says that Kenneth More was sacked by Rank after heckling John Davis at a function in 1958, in fact it was 1961. Later the author gives us the astounding and hitherto unknown fact that Capucine was a "transsexual". He goes on to mention a possible relationship with Audrey Hepburn, so what he actually means is she was a lesbian.

    If you don't know the difference between a woman who was born a man and a homosexual woman you really have a problem!
    Funny you should say that! A young relative of mine, female, is in a relationship with a woman who was born male. This has me completely baffled. Why would a young man become a woman and then hook up with a woman instead of a man? Why not stay a man?
    So I would wonder the same about Capucine, and I find it very hard to believe Audrey Hepburn would have been in a relationship like that. I think the author might be making it all up.

      Look at his contemporaries on the Ra nk contract list,Craig,Bogarde,Carmichael.All had long careers and did not end up in Steels pitiful situation.Lawson was an alcoholic but still turned in worthy cameos.

        The point is Capucine was most certainly not born a man!!!
