When he was getting ready to film Ghandi, Richard Attenborough had spent a great deal of time talking with people who had known him, and was getting increasingly frustrated with people who had very specific ideas about how he should be portrayed. One woman felt that it was impossible to show Ghandi as an individual, that his spiritual importance trumped everything else. When she described him as a ray of light, Attenborough lost it, and said something to the effect that he wasn't making a film about "a bloody Tinkerbell."
