A few years later, my wife Jane Asher organised a secret meal for my birthday at this exclusive restaurant in Provence. When we walked in, the only other people there were Ronald and his wife. It turned out they had lived in this town for years. A beautiful little package sat on the table, all done up with ribbon. I said: "Oh, is this for me?" And Ronald said: "Yeah, it's nothing." So I opened it, and there was a brass doorbell with a note saying: "Please ring any time." … [Read more...] about Ronald Searle: Now let’s have some fizz

Though Pope was Oscar-nominated eight years ago for Neil Burger’s The Illusionist, this is the first time he’s received major awards attention for a Leigh film.
