A 20-page black-and-white salute to Stanley Baker, one of the giants of Welsh cinema to tie-in with a special season of his films at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff. Like Robert Mitchum (with whom he was often compared) Baker could play heroes and villains with ease. But he was a tender tough guy who remained close to his Welsh roots and eschewed the Hollywood road taken by his contemporaries. “Good as Bread”: A Tribute to Stanley Baker contains an essay by cinema specialist Terence Pettigrew on Baker’s life and times, an extensive TV and filmography, and a series of tributes from friends and colleagues including actress Siân Phillips.
