Personal Quote:

I did Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968) and I didn't enjoy making it. The film made a lot of money, but that doesn't really make me feel any better about it. On the other hand, I've made pictures that got awards at Berlin and places and didn't make any money, and that doesn't make me feel any better, either. See more »

Trivia:

One of a very few people to work with Albert R. Broccoli *after* working on a "renegade" James Bond film (in this case, Casino Royale (1967). With few exceptions, anyone involved in such productions was spurned by Eon Productions.

Star Sign:
