Personal Quote:

[on directing several of the James Bond pictures] One of the rules with the Bond pictures is that you're not allowed to have a leading lady who can act--because we can't afford them . . . If ever we were to have a real leading lady, the next time around we'd have to find another one. And in no time at all we'd have to have, oh, Jane Fonda for $2 million and up. See more »

Trivia:

He was originally hired to direct Superman (1978), when the film was scheduled to film in Italy. Marlon Brando refused to work in Italy and insisted the production be moved to England. For this and other reasons the production was moved to England, and Hamilton, a "tax exile" who could only be in England for 30 days a year, had to drop out and was replaced by Richard Donner.
