Personal Quote:

I liked "The True Glory" because it was made when I was in the army, by a crazy outfit known as the Anglo-American Film Unit, which had about 109 officers (from 2nd Lt. up to chicken Colonel), six sergeants and two, repeat two, private soldiers. I was the American private; Peter Ustinov was my British counterpart.


Moved to Mexico in the early 1960's to write several novels, living for almost fifteen years in Guanajuato. See more »
