Personal Quote:

[on directing several of the James Bond pictures] One of the rules with the Bond pictures is that you're not allowed to have a leading lady who can act--because we can't afford them . . .

Trivia:

Apart from directing four James Bond movies, he also directed a Harry Palmer movie: Funeral in Berlin (1966); a Miss Marple movie: The Mirror Crack'd (1980); and an Hercule Poirot movie: Evil Under the Sun (1982). See more »
