Sam Spiegel Facts
Originally worked in films using the pseudonym "S.P. Eagle".

According to his biographer Natasha Fraser-Cavassoni, Spiegel used the casting couch quite liberally to dole out roles to actresses in his production of The Chase (1966). He had not been able to behave that way during the production of his two earlier Oscar-winning productions, The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957) and Lawrence of Arabia (1962), as they had had virtually all-male casts.

Garson Kanin wrote that for a while, he was known as S.P. Eagle, and that in temperament, mien, method and looks, he certainly resembled a predatory bird.
