Get out there as quickly as you can to display your versatility. Yeah, but it was about a year and a half after being left out in the cold by Paramount.
I was actually hopping mad and used that film as an opportunity to vent.

I did get to work with the wonderful and brilliant Penelope Spheeris on that one. I loved playing that guy in your film. Your movie star status got that film financed.
Maybe I should have tried to make it a bigger payday. He put a lot of us to work. What was it like for you, coming from humble beginnings to suddenly find yourself in the midst of British theater and film royalty? And did your father-in-law give you any career advice? My father-in-law, the late, great Sir John Mills, chose to let me make my errors.
He did counsel me on occasion but I really should have towed the line a bit more. I was very enamored of the antics of James Dean and similar rebel heroes of the mid to late fifties who kind of got away with murder on the basis of their talent and their indispensability.
Since then the business has become more corporate as it transitioned into the eighties and nineties. There was no room for antics or acting out. You were barely out of your teens yourself.
We did a prestigious winter tour of Florida in I was playing the title role and she was playing the Victorian actress, Mrs.

Everyone was just in love with life. Some would disappear into the Pines or whatever it was called. Others just carried on dancing and drinking. I lost friends like everybody. I was lucky enough to experience that. What are your memories of him and landing the lead in the musical? Allan was terrific to me until the film came out. Before that he was amazing. He loaned Juliet and I his house in Hawaii. He took a chance on me.

Just before I came on there were flowers all over the set.
That showed that she had range, that she was versatile. Well, I was stuck for a while with a reputation as a bubblegum actor. There was one point where I was considering working for a Jaguar dealership out in the US. They said they wanted an ambassador, but really all they wanted was a salesman with a British accent. I knew I wanted to excel at something and around that time they decided to put on a production of The Boyfriend.
They drafted in some girls from one of the nearby schools which was a bit of a bonus. Initially I was partnered with the prettiest girl there was, but when it came to the final cast I ended with the most homely looking girl. It was an early taste of the unpredictable machinations of the acting business.Juliet Mills and Maxwell Caulfield - Share, Inc. Boomtown Gala 2018
