Personal Quote:

[on Kenneth More] I was very fond of Kenny as an actor, although he wasn't particularly versatile. What he could do, he did very well. His strength was his ability to portray charm; basically he was the officer returning from the war and was superb in that role. The minute that kind of role went out of existence, his popularity as a box-office star began to go down. See more »
