    Sort of on the side, The Guardian has an interesting quote from Cardiff on why he eventually gave up directing and went back to being a cinematographer, that he didn't feel temperamentally up to being the all-powerful jerk that one has to be to be a film director.

    "It's only in books that the officers of the detective force are superior to the weakness of making a mistake." (Wilkie Collins, The Moonstone)
