Arthur Lowe (1915-1982)

  1. Alec Guinness, Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy, TV, 1979.    Convinced  that he had not correctly captured author John Le Carré’s spymaster, George Smiley, a depressed Guinness rang his director, John Irvin, at 3am demanding to be  dropped and replaced by Lowe, a popular BBC TV star. “Certainly not,” said Irvin,  “I’ve  been  seeing the rushes.” Despite the triumph of the mini-series, Guinness said much the  same to director Simon Langton  during Smiley’s People, 1982. “Don’t worry,” said Le Carré, “he’s done that before.”
  2. Alan Cassell, Breaker Morant, Australia, 1980.    Going from TV's Dad's Army fussbudgetto Field Marshal Horatio Kitchener... People would have guffawed  too much, ruining a fine film about a shocking chapter of the Boer War.
