[on John Gielgud
] John Gielgud was a personal favourite because he was such a stickler for the truth. When he saw me outside the Strand Theatre with Honor Blackman
when we were in Wait Until Dark he said hello and asked me what I was doing and I said 'I'm in this'. He said 'Ah, ah, I hear the girl is very good'. I could have been playing the butler for all he knew.
He was awarded the O.B.E. (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) in the 2007 Queen Elizabeth's Birthday Honors List for his services to drama.
