Personal Quote:

There's probably nobody more redundant in the film world than a writer of origin hanging around the set of his movie, as I've learned to my cost. Alec Guinness actually did me the favor of having me shown off the set of the BBC's TV adaptation of "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy." All I was wanting to do was radiate my admiration, but Alec said my glare was too intense. See more »

Trivia:

British double agent and defector Kim Philby blew the cover of many British agents in the Communist bloc after his defection to the Soviet Union, with Le Carre (under his real name of David Cornwell) being one of them. See more »
