Of all the movies Schlesinger made, "Day of the Locust" was his favorite.


'Darling' is and always has been my favorite movie. Just the right combination of time and place for me. And a wonderfully crisp screenplay by Frederic Raphael, which, if the public demands, I will be happy to recite from start to finish. Only met Schlesinger once (at a press screening of SBS). But one day on the 'Mystery!' set, host Vincent Price's wife, the actress, Coral Browne, visited, spotted an Art Deco vase on the set, and turned to me to say, "Johnny Schlesinger's boyfriend would LOVE this." Why, oh why, did I not immediately grab it and mail it off to him? Johnny S had directed Coral and Alan Bates in the superb Alan Bennett-penned film 'An Englishman Abroad,' currently available in its entirely on YouTube.
