Personal Quote:

I imagine like most of us that I'd like obscene amounts of money but the people I met and worked with who have those obscene amounts of money and have obscene amounts of fame have awful lives. Really. I mean hideously compromised lives. And I can go anywhere. No one knows who I am. I can go on the tube and bus and wander through the streets. So I'm quite happy not to get the girl.

Trivia:

Shares two roles with Hans Conreid. Conreid appeared in the Walt Disney animated version of Peter Pan, while Isaacs appeared in the 2003 live action film. Both films followed a tradition encouraged by James Barrie, and followed in most stage productions, that Mr. Darling and Captain Hook be played by the same actor. Accordingly, he and Conreid played both parts in their respective films. See more »
