(1970). He was just wonderful for the tunnel-vision ...
Towards the end of his life, he said he'd like to have another go at filming Boris Pasternak
's "Doctor Zhivago." The prerequisite for remaking the film would be the casting of Julie Christie
once again as Lara, but since she would be too old for the part, he wouldn't be able to do it.
