Personal Quote:

It's not just what you pay the actors, everything goes up when you do it [in Hollywood], it just grows and grows. But the English artists I was working with cared more about what they were doing than how much they were paid to do it. It's not that way in America, I hate to say it but it's true. See more »

In his autobiography, producer David Brown recounts how his partner, Richard Zanuck, offered the lead in "Lawrene of Arabia" to Evans as a practical joke. See more »
