Roger about marrying Luisa: "I was simply numb through the whole thing. It was the best moment of my life. Signing the register felt to me more dramatic than any of the stuff I had been sending up for years. Signing my biggest contract was like giving an autograph compared to it. The wedding luncheon at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington, had about 120 guests and they were all fully aware of what it meant to us ... For our honeymoon - one of our many honeymoons - both before and after - we went to Cannes for the Film Festival."
