Personal Quote:

[on his last day's work, in November of 1990, on "Hudson Hawk" (1991)]: To top this day of release, upon landing at Heathrow, the euphoric headlines smashed out across every London paper declare that "Thatcher Is Out!". Me too, Margaret. And none too soon. She, no doubt, "out of her mind", and me, equally unhinged with joy to be FREE! Of Hungary, "Hawk" and HER!!! See more »

Trivia:

His father was the last minister of education in the British colony of Swaziland before independence in 1968. See more »
