The old adage about acting – that it’s 98% energy and 2% talent – is true, you know.Richard Attenborough
If I were able to write, I probably would. But movies have given me a part of my life where I can express feelings and bring convictions to an audience as if I could write. So I made ‘Gandhi’ about human relations, prejudice and the empire. In ‘Cry Freedom’ I expressed my horror and disgust about apartheid.Richard Attenborough
Say what you will about ‘Miracle on 34th Street’; I can take my grandchildren to it. If I had a maiden aunt, I could take her, or my ma and pa if they were alive.Richard Attenborough
There’s nothing more important in making movies than the screenplay.Richard Attenborough
My main aim in ‘Gandhi’ was to project him as the vanguard of non-violence. Nowhere in the world has a movement of non-cooperation sans violence received so much support from masses as Gandhi’s movement in India did. He was, to a great extent, responsible for freeing his nation from the British Raj.Richard Attenborough
