Vidal Sassoon: The Movie Reviews
For a hairdresser he's a thoroughly likeable chap. He died in May this year aged 84 but he looked terrific for his age. He was on Desert Island Disks recently too, I was surprised to hear his story about being in an orphanage as a young East End jewish boy, you expect an over privileged gay twerp with a name like that but there you go.
Nice film, worth a watch.
We are given glimpses into Sassoon's rise to fame and fortune from a Jewish orphanage, along with a candid look at the crumbling of his personal life in later years. We see how his personality brought him fame and fortune.
This is a sensitive work with firsthand accounts of those who shaped Sassoon's life, from childhood to today.
This film is must watching for social history buffs. Bravo!
