What Donald Said About Tom

I've been reading about the late actor, Donald Pleasence, and found this quote:

There was a sort of horror picture that I did called The Mutations (1974). I think I did that solely for the money. I have six daughters, and they can be quite expensive, so one has to keep working and be able to pay the bills. I did get to work with Tom Baker. He's a very charming, bright man and I liked him very much. I remember that movie as a very happy time; the whole gang of us were very friendly, and that means so much when you're working together. But I surely wouldn't list that film among my proudest moments.


...I wondered whether you had any particular memories of Mr Pleasence?

Dear Graceful Leonard

Donald Pleasance? I accepted the part in The Mutations because Donald was to play the lead. The whole experience was terrific and Donald was a marvellously witty and generous leader.
