Sir Donald Sinden

  1. Donald Pleasence, The Big Day, 1960.      Bland UK director Peter Graham-Scott wanted realism. His producer, Julian Wintle, wanted a star – like the posh one  from the Rank Organisation’s Doctor capers.  And later, a Shakesperian star. “He worked out,” said his producer  son Marc, “that he only had a total of five weeks unemployment between 1942 and 2008, which was probably a record in itself.”
