Personal Quote:

[on Sean Connery] He doesn't give a damn for the ancillary assets of being a star. It's not that he's ungrateful. It's just that he's concerned with personal integrity. A hell of a lot of people don't like Sean because of this. See more »


He was in a helicopter which crashed over water whilst filming From Russia with Love (1963). It trapped the director below the surface for a considerable time in an air bubble inside the copter's canopy. He was rescued and then immediately went back behind the camera with his arm in a sling.

He frequently cast Desmond Llewelyn and Anthony Dawson.
