    Rumours ?? They're all true. Booze, broads. Make up some more if you want to.

    Robert Mitchum - Paris Passion, June 1990

    Actors About the Stanislavsky Method

    Stanislavsky helps the weak. The idea of a Stanislavskian self-indulgence is anathema to me. I hate this public display of a personal rat bitting a personal stomach.

    Richard Burton - Playboy, 1963

    Method actors give you a photograph. Real actors give you an oil painting.

    Charles Laughton - (quoted by J.Gleason in) Playboy, 1962

    We exponents of horror do much better than those Method actors. We make the unbelievable believable. More often than not, they make the believable unbelievable.

    Vincent Price - Sunday Express, 1964

    "Duncan Macrae as the creepy, mad brother gives a great performance, but he's not noticeably less attractive than Maxwell Reed who's a total pudding. In a bad light Reed could pass for James Mason if you discount the lack of acting talent and sex appeal."

    britishpictures.com give their opinion of Max's appearance in The Brothers.

    Cannes Festival


    My idea of hell. You see all the people you thought were dead and all the people who deserve to be dead. After a while, you start to think that you might be dead, too.

    Dirk Bogarde - Films Illustrated, 1975


    Has anybody got a tea-bag for the hot water in my glass ??

    Paul Newman (at a packed press conference), 1987

    I've read a quote that was attributed to Patrick McGoohan, which said:

    Television is a Medium. It is neither rare, nor well-done.

    But I've never found the interview from whence the quote came, or at least if I have, I have forgotten where it was.

    The famous one usually attributed to Dorothy Parker, about "I am a Camera" is really attributable to an American critic called Walter Kerr, according to this Playbill website. Plus a few other good ones.

    Rex Harrison to Robert Morley the night after Morley's This is Your Life had been broadcast:

    "So brave and not a programme I would ever dare to do, not with the two suicides in my life, and the four divorces and all that. But then, Robert, for you life has been so very different: one wife, one family, one home and, if I may say so, one performance."

    Which was bloody cheeky coming from him

    Michael Caine is an over-fat, flatulent 62 year-old windbag, a master of inconsequence, now masquerading as a guru, passing off his vast limitations as pious virtues.

    Richard Harris
