Personal Quote:

[1973, on 'James Bond' producers Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli] They're not exactly enamoured of each other. Probably they're both sitting on $50 million and looking across the desk at each other and thinking, 'That bugger's got half of what should be all mine'. See more »

Trivia:

He pulled out of a film in September 2004, sparking rumors that he was going to retire. However three months later in an interview with "The Scotsman" newspaper from his home in the Bahamas, he said he is taking a year out to write his autobiography (something he had previously vowed never to do), and hopes to make another film.
