Personal Quote:

On the famous ending of The Italian Job (1969): "None of us liked the ending at the time. I didn't even write the final scene in the film. Michael Deeley added it after they'd run out of money. Peter Collinson hated it so much he wouldn't film it and made the assistant director do it instead." See more »

Trivia:

He was named Troy after a Catholic priest called Father Troy who had been a friend of his father. See more »
