Personal Quote:

[on Richard Attenborough] One can not escape the suspicion that Dickie is acting out all his roles as mediator, peacemaker, director, chairman, businessman, yet he is redeemed by a true goodness of heart, which drives him to pursue the common good. He has reached out to me just at the moment I needed it, alone and embattled. That is his genius. See more »

Trivia:

Moved to Ireland from L.A. in 1969 when he was directing Leo the Last (1970). Purchased a Georgian rectory in County Wicklow for £21,500. Back then the location was quite remote though, nowadays, his neighbors include such luminaries as, Paddy Moloney (The Chieftains' front man), Paul McGuinness (U2's manager), Daniel Day-Lewis, etc. See more »
