Personal Quote:

[on "The Thief Of Baghdad" (1940)]: It was really a Korda film. If it had been the mess it looked like being, then Korda would have been finished, so he might as well get the credit. Korda was technically the producer, but he controlled it totally, and, effectively, he directed it.


Educated at Bryanston School, Dorset, and trained for acting at RADA. Subsequently with John Gielgud's repertory company. See more »
