Personal Quote:

[on "No Blade of Grass," the film adaptation of "Death of Grass"] I can say I successfully closed down Borehamwood Studios. It came from a brilliant book, but Cornel Wilde, God rest his soul, I don't think he did it justice when it came to the screenplay. He seemed to go over the top and get some bits of egg on his face.
