Personal Quote:

[on Michael Caine in Educating Rita (1983)] Over the years I'd lost touch with Michael personally, but I kept tabs on his work. It's been so varied--he's never been particularly typed. The characters in Alfie (1966) and "Rita" couldn't be more opposite, but there was no doubt in my mind that he should be the professor. See more »
