Trivia

John Mills (Old Norway) and Richard Attenborough (The English Ambassador) were offered the roles of the murderers in Richard III (1955), in which John Gielgud (Priam) played the Duke of Clarence. However, Mills believed that it would be stunt casting and Attenborough was unavailable.


Quotes

Hamlet: If it be now, 'tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come: the readiness is all.
