Trivia that mentions this person:
Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery [1997]
  • Mike Myers has revealed in interviews that the Austin Powers character was created based on a couple of instances involving his family. His father loved watching British comedies with actors like Peter Sellers and Alec Guinness, so Myers always wanted to play an English character in a comedy. He also said that one night after coming home from hockey practice, he started flirting with his wife in an English accent. His wife laughed and told him to write the routine down, so he could do it again. Writing the routine down led to this script.
    Scrooge [1970]
  • Alec Guinness did not enjoy doing this movie. It required much more time than he expected, with the need of wires and a harness for his floating character. He suffered a double-hernia that required surgery to repair.
  • Alec Guinness' big musical number was cut from the film, although the lead-in remains intact. It was called "Make the Most of This Life."
