Patrick Macnee QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
Accomplishment is such a patronizing, dangerous word, isn't it? I haven't really accomplished anything. The most accomplished thing I've done is to have lived this long - 81.
Quotation of Patrick Macnee
And in the Second World War, you didn't just read about it in the newspapers because you weren't allowed to read it in the newspapers. It was all censored, you know? So nobody knew what we were doing.
Quotation of Patrick Macnee
And that's what happened to that show. It started ordinary, it started really rather bad. As I said, there was a review that said, really, we think the commercials are better than the show. And then it gradually developed.

Quotation of Patrick Macnee
But I did an awful lot of work in Hollywood, and in New York for that matter.
Quotation of Patrick Macnee
I like most of the Humphrey Bogart movies because they had to act then, and they acted very well. Edward G. Robinson is probably the best actor I've ever seen on the movies.
Quotation of Patrick Macnee
I mean, everyone says Citizen Kane. It isn't that great, anyway. And Orson Welles I knew well, of course. He made other incredible films that no one would let him make, which were much better than Citizen Kane, really.

Quotation of Patrick Macnee
I went to acting school, but only for nine months. If you're an actor, you know, don't really need to learn how to do it.
Quotation of Patrick Macnee
It doesn't work that way, you know, because most parts that you think you'd do well, most other people don't. So they offer you something - The Avengers is a good example... I fitted into that because I came from that sort of background. It's not even acting.
Quotation of Patrick Macnee
It was male chauvinism, as you must realize, in the 1960s, particularly in the entertainment business, which was pretty repulsive.
Quotation of Patrick Macnee
No, I was working in Canada. In fact, the man who asked me to be in The Avengers, I told him, what do I need to be in that, I'm a producer now.
Quotation of Patrick Macnee
So I find the fascination, the love, the incredible skill and everything to do with acting, writing plays, and doing them, just darling. Lovely. I love actors.
Quotation of Patrick Macnee
Television has some lovely aspects to it - and some ghastly aspects - but the theater itself was a wonderful invention.
Quotation of Patrick Macnee
That's probably the most erotic thing I've ever seen in my life - Ingrid Bergman walking around in a theater-in-the-round in a backless dress, not long before she died.

Quotation of Patrick Macnee
They call it The New Avengers but it's really the old Avengers with new people except for me, looking rather fat and rather old.
Quotation of Patrick Macnee
Until the year 1967, it was a crime, for which you could be put in prison, to make homosexual love to someone in your own house. If they came in and caught you at it, you could be put into prison. This has changed - I'm talking about England, incidentally.
Quotation of Patrick Macnee
We were the first people in popular television to make the woman an equal partner with the man. You won't believe that, but I promise you it's true.

Well, you know, I was through the whole of the Second World War and saw all my friends killed.
Quotation of Patrick Macnee
You can't get a much better actress than Dame Maggie Smith or Dame Diana Rigg. They're the tops, aren't they?
Quotation of Patrick Macnee
You can't get much bigger than Lumley, she's the biggest star in England now, of anybody. She's got another show that's on now, that's hugely successful, Absolutely Fabulous. She's a wonderful woman.
