Personal Quote:

[1992] There were a lot of very controversial films and my predecessor was unhappy with the glare of publicity. He's had A Clockwork Orange (1971), Straw Dogs (1971), Last Tango in Paris (1972), The Devils (1971). They were coming out left right and centre, and he was constantly in the firing line. I was asked to take it over and restore public confidence. See more »
