The John Player Lecture

In November 1970 Dirk was interviewed at the National Film Theatre by Margaret Hinxman as part of the John Player Lecture series. Dirk was at his best; relaxed, engaging, forthcoming, sharp, occasionally slanderous but not malicious, and very, very funny. The organisers, Søren Fischer (pictured) and Brian Baxter, said afterwards that only Billy Wilder had made an audience laugh as much.
