Personal Quote:

[About the early 40s] At that time everybody was asking why it was that America could shoot 20 setups a day and in England we seemed to only manage about nine?

Trivia:

When Neame's boss, Claude Friese-Greene, collapsed on the set in an alcoholic stupor, young assistant cameraman Neame finished the picture, a quota quickie entitled "Drake of England," as well as the next scheduled title, "Invitation to the Waltz". See more »
