Personal Quote:

[on director Michael Anderson] Michael is the kindest man. And it all comes from the top. He creates this benign atmosphere. The actors are not threatened, they're encouraged, and they're treated as human beings, and that's because he knows his stuff: Michael's been everything -- from the clapper boy, all the way up to editor and director. He knows what he wants. See more »


Appears in Romeo and Juliet (1968) and The Three Musketeers (1973)/The Four Musketeers: Milady's Revenge (1974). Both of the literary works on which these were based were later satirized in the play Cyrano de Bergerac, which makes use of the balcony scene from the former and the character of d'Artagnan from the latter.
