The movies were integral to Terry O’Neill’s life both personally and professionally. He grew up in a post-war London where radio and two black and white TV channels were the only entertainment unless you could afford the cinema and dance halls. But as his career exploded and Hollywood came calling for his services on set, Terry said “I thought I’d died and gone to heaven.” Suddenly I was on the set of Cleopatra with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, or the Bob Hope/Bing Crosby Road movies. He was quickly offered the opportunity to photograph the first Bond movies and of course, being on set with stars who had become close friends, like Sean Connery, gave him and his camera a front row seat to fame. Invariably it was his friends, such as Paul Newman or Frank Sinatra who would call on O’Neill.
