I haven't seen the film yet because I just got in from London. In the scenes where the two characters are bantering with each other, it is like bobbing at the net in tennis.

Youll come to see that a man learns nothing from winning. The act of losing, however, can elicit great wisdom. Not least of which is how much more enjoyable it is to win. Its inevitable to lose now and again. The trick is not to make a habit of it.

Maybe don't make it so.

When I read the script, I liked the script very much and I thought it was a marvelous part for her, because I think it is a change of pace. I mean, we know how wonderful she is in romantic comedy.

Well, I've always thought that...

Well, I've always thought that my career was in England, really. I used to do more in the theatre, and I felt that I should be there. It's not far is it? It's amazing the way that special FX have taken a quantum leap in what they're capable of doing.

We're given the springboard of the text, a plane ticket, told to report to Alabama, and there's a group of people all ready to make a film and it's a marvelous life.

I like playing accents, and doing things like that, it was fun. It was fun.

I mean, I did a film, a musical of 'Scrooge', in '70, and the tricks were done by flat clothes and mirrors. I hope that the day will come when we don't have to turn up at all.

My girlfriend and I rented a nice house on the river and I was there for about two and a half months, and we were just out of Alabama. I hardly got to see Alabama.

It's true that old actors don't die, their parts get smaller. You're less likely to get the part, many parts, if you're playing people your age as opposed to people who are younger. There are fewer parts around.

There’s a time when a man needs to fight, and a time when he needs to accept that his destiny is lost, that the ship has sailed, and that only a fool would continue. The truth is, I’ve always been a fool.

I don't think that we necessar...

I don't think that we necessarily lie. I mean, we make our living by pretending that we're someone else. I don't tell tall tales. I always tell the truth.

I don't really look back at all. When I've made a film, I've made it. They kind of go out into the world and they're on their own really.

I don't plan on digging that stuff up that I've kept down with my feet. Why would I want to dig it all up and examine it like an archaeologist?

I don't enter, I'm entered. It's up to someone else. It's up to them.

He'd just run, run all the time, and he walks about, doesn't he, he never stops. I think that they put an odometer on him one day and he walked miles.

Albert Finney 72 quotes

He tells you stories, but then...

He tells you stories, but then, after a while, when you want more, he doesn't give you more. He insists on this old elaboration, the old stories that never changes.

Albert Finney 72 quotes

He just lets you go, really. When we were kind of supposed to rehearse, I don't remember rehearsing at all. We just sort of gossiped and chatted.

Albert Finney 72 quotes

All we did in Alabama was have a read through with the script, but there was, 'No, well, it needs more. You've got to do this, Albert. You've got to do that, Jessica.' It didn't feel like that at all.

Albert Finney 72 quotes

To be a character who feels a deep emotion, one must go into the memory's vault and mix in a sad memory from one's own life.
