Personal Quote:

It's no exaggeration to say that the 'sequence' group changed the whole way of feeling and thinking about film in England - at any rate for a few inspiring years, before the British sank once again into complacency and philistinism.

Trivia:

In 1970 he planned to make a film about the dancer Nijinskij, with Russian dancer Rudolf Nureyev and French actress Claude Jade, but it was never released. See more »
