What a coincidence! I came out of an all-night film show to come face-to-face with Albert Finney. While he was not the star of the main movie, he did feature in one of the adverts shown during the intermission.
When we chatted about his performance, Finney admitted that he was not terribly proud of it. He expressed regret that his career had floundered to the point that he was forced to accept work on commercials.
