Personal Quote:

[on the stars of Darling (1965)] [Dirk Bogarde] was wonderful and was very nice to Julie [Christie] during the shoot. He became rather a bitter older man, I don't know why. But he was very embittered. We rather fell out as friends, which is sad, but it happens. Julie still remains a good friend of mine. As was Laurence Harvey, who died far too young. See more »
