Wikipedia, November 20, 2015 (Michael Redgrave; Sir Michael Scudamore Redgrave CBE (20 March 1908-21 March 1985) was an English stage and film actor, director, manager and author; born Bristol, Gloucestershire, England; died Denham, Buckinghamshire, England; Corin Redgrave helped his father in the writing of his last autobiography. During one of Corin's visits to his father, the latter said, "There is something I ought to tell you". Then, after a very long pause, "I am, to say the least of it, bisexual". Corin encouraged him to acknowledge his bisexuality in the book. Michael agreed to do so, but in the end he chose to remain silent about it. Alan Strachan's 2004 biography of Redgrave discusses his affairs with both men and women; The 1996 BBC documentary film Michael Redgrave: My Father, narrated by Corin Redgrave, and based on his book of the same name, discusses Michael's bisexuality in some depth)
