Sibyl Railton-Bell: Why have you told so many awful lies?
Major Angus Pollock: Because I don't like myself the way I am, i suppose. I had to invent someone else... It's not harmful really. We all have our daydreams. Mine have just gone a step further than most people.
Major Angus Pollock: Sometimes I just manage to believe in the Major myself.

When she was interviewed by the "London News Chronicle" about her Oscar win, Wendy Hiller said she thought the Academy was crazy for giving it to her. "All you could see of me in the picture was the back of my head. Unless they give some award for acting with one's back to the camera, I don't see how I could have won. They cut my two best scenes and gave one to Rita Hayworth." She went on, "Never mind the honor, though I'm sure it's very nice of them. I hope this award means cash - hard cash. I want lots of lovely offers to go filming in Hollywood, preferably in the winter so I can avoid all the horrid cold over here."
