Freddie Young, film technician and award-winning director of photography recounts his life story charting the development of the cinema in England and the United States.

He photographed VICTORY, his first silent feature film, at age 26, and is associated with VICTORIA THE GREAT, GOODBYE MR CHIPS (1939), IVANHOE (1952), KNIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE (1953), and LAWRENCE OF ARABIA (1962), the first of three collaborations with David Lean.
