Personal Quote:

[on the staff of "Private Eye", during his lawsuit against its editor}: They have attacked my son. I will throw them into prison. I will hound their wives, even in their widows' weeds.


Terence Stamp and Oliver Stone have both claimed that the character Stamp plays in Stone's film Wall Street (1987) was largely based on Goldsmith. It has also been suggested that the Richard De Vere character played by Peter Bowles in the long-running BBC sitcom To the Manor Born (1979) was suggested by Goldsmith. See more »
