Robert Morley

Anecdote...

Morley once met an old friend, fellow actor , whom he had not seen for some time. “It’s nice meeting old friends,” said Rees warmly. “A lot of people think I’m dead.”

“Not if they look closely,” said Morley.

Quote-worthy...

It is a great help for a man to be in love with himself. For an actor, however, it is absolutely essential.

~Robert Morley
