It documents his life between 1946 and 1969, directed by Marcus Dillistone and produced by his son Jonathan Mills. Commentary was provided by Sir John, Hayley Mills, Juliet Mills and Sir Richard Attenborough. His wife Mary Hayley Bell is also seen towards the end of the film listening to her husband singing at the piano. The scene was later to be screened in full when Sir John appeared on the Parkinson show. The home movie clips date mainly from the 1950 and early 1960s and include appearances by Sir Dirk Bogarde, David Niven, Lord Olivier, James Mason, Lionel Jeffries, Sir Rex Harrison, Walt Disney, Jean Simmons, Harry Andrews, Tyrone Power and Stewart Granger.

Marcus, who also edited the film, spent many hours matching Sir John's home movie location clips to the finished scenes in these movies. Jonathan said "I immediately realised what could be made using these home movies – a unique way of telling my father's extraordinary life story."
