    I thought the Anne Edwards’ biography of VL was the best one!

    Thanks again for doing this video Q&A. I always look forward to these. Keep them coming!

    I thought that Larry’s favorite film was “The Entertainer”. I know that he enjoyed taking on such a different role.

    Larry definitely should have done another Hitchcock film (and I wish Vivien did one too). Selznick wanted Larry for the lead role in the Hitchcock-directed “The Paradine Case” (1947). I think that he would have done a great job. I love Gregory Peck, but he just doesn’t fit the bill of an English barrister. Interestingly, Hitchcock thought that Larry was miscast in “Rebecca”.

    Was the Entertainer his favorite film, or his favorite role that he played? I assumed something Shakespeare because he did everything and had control over the part and the production.

    I thought Larry did great in Rebecca–but i like the film better than the book, lol.

    Yes, I believe you’re right. Larry really did enjoy directing motion pictures.The Shakespeare films were probably his favorite films, while Archie Rice was his favorite role.

    Thanks so much for answering my question! I don’t think I knew about her writing articles so that is great. It is a shame there isn’t an autobio but that totally makes sense that people usually write those late in life, never thought of that! And why don’t I own the Vickers bio yet! I need to get on that.

    Interesting, as always! I wish they’d play old movies in theatres around here.
