Ken Russell

  1. David Hemmings, The Rainbow, 1989.      Finding it impossible to replace runaway Elton John as the cynical Uncle Henry, director Ken Russell said: “Looks as if I’ll have to play it myself.”   Which prompted his producer to   splutter: “Why don’t we try David Hemmings again?”   Russell has acted in more than 20 films, mainly his own.
