Personal Quote:

[on working with Michael Caine and Glenda Jackson on The Romantic Englishwoman (1975)] I admire Michael Caine in this film and have great respect for Glenda Jackson. She is of a different generation to mine and a different theatrical background. She can be like a bird. I have to run after her. She is so exciting, she gives so much.
