Personal Quote:

[on Moby Dick (1956)] rubber for the Moby Dick whale was provided by Dunlop, it was operated by a very rudimentary radio control system. Anyway, we needed to test out the model with sea trials. We took it down on the beach near Dover and we pushed it out to sea. It was huge. A big white whale. It floated, bobbed about for a bit, then it sank and was never seen again. We had to build another one. See more »

Trivia:

Brighton Rock (1947) Gerry was stuck for a baby during the production of the movie and ultimately offered one of his own; his son, Gerald Mitchell, then still less than a year old, appears in the film. See more »
