Coward en Infarto agudo de miocardio. Firefly Estate. It is this that makes a newly discovered photograph album so extraordinary.
It shows intimate glimpses from the private life of this towering cultural figure. Carey died in It is because of her long-held loyalty to the man she and other intimates only half-ironically called the Master that the album has only now come to light, due to be sold at a London sale room later this month.
Here, and at more exotic sites, we see the artist and his famous friends at play. Coward was homosexual but, following the convention of his times, this was never publicly mentioned.
No private considerations have been allowed to deflect the drive of his career; like Gielgud and Rattigan , like the late Ivor Novello, he is a congenital bachelor.
Coward's most important relationship, which began in the mids and lasted until his death, was with the South African stage and film actor Graham Payn.
Payn later co-edited with Sheridan Morley a collection of Coward's diaries, published in Coward's other relationships included the playwright Keith Winter, actors Louis Hayward and Alan Webb , his manager Jack Wilson and the composer Ned Rorem , who published details of their relationship in his diaries.

In that capacity, he befriended the young Peter Collinson , who was in the care of the orphanage. He became Collinson's godfather and helped him to get started in show business.
When Collinson was a successful director, he invited Coward to play a role in The Italian Job. Graham Payn also played a small role in the film.
In , Coward acquired Goldenhurst Farm , in Aldington, Kent , making it his home for most of the next thirty years, except when the military used it during the Second World War.
Coward was a witness at the Flemings' wedding, but his diaries record his exasperation with their constant bickering.

What it most emphatically is not and never will be is a scruffy, ill-lit, fumed-oak drill hall serving as a temporary soap box for political propaganda.
He wrote of his views, "Do I believe in God? I can't say No and I can't say Yes, To me it's anybody's guess.
The language did. As a suburban boy who had been taken up by the upper classes he rapidly acquired the taste for high life: "I am determined to travel through life first class.
As soon as he achieved success he began polishing the Coward image: an early press photograph showed him sitting up in bed holding a cigarette holder: "I looked like an advanced Chinese decadent in the last phases of dope.
I believe that to a certain extent this was true; at any rate, during the ensuing months I noticed more and more of our seedier West-End chorus boys parading about London in them.
I did everything that was expected of me. Part of the job. Coward's distinctive clipped diction arose from his childhood: his mother was deaf and Coward developed his staccato style of speaking to make it easier for her to hear what he was saying; it also helped him eradicate a slight lisp.

Die Affäre mit Streatfeild endete, als dieser an Tuberkulose starb. In mehreren Produktionen trat er gemeinsam mit Charles Hawtrey , einem vielgeachteten Schauspieler und Komödienautor, auf.
