Rupert Birkin: You've had your experience now. Why work on an old wound?
Gerald Crich: Because there's nothing else.
Rupert Birkin: l've loved you, as well as Gudrun. Don't forget.

Oliver Reed Facts
He was a fan of James Dean in East of Eden (1955) and Rebel Without a Cause (1955).

According to director Ken Russell, the original script for Women in Love (1969) did not include the famous nude wrestling scene because he felt it wouldn't pass the censors and would be difficult to shoot. It wasn't until Reed talked him into it by literally throwing his weight around--he wrestled Russell in his kitchen, pinned him down, and wouldn't let him up unless he agreed to shoot it.

The actor he admired most was Errol Flynn.
