Personal Quote:

[on Michael Powell]: I adored Michael. I know all his faults...Michael loved bullying people, because he wanted them to bully him back; I've seen him have artistes in tears - but if you kicked back, it was all right. We used to have the most fantastic rows, but I always got the last word. See more »
