Yes, of course. A thinko on my part.
I think what I was trying (but failing) to get at, was more about him not
seeing the end result of the artistic project as a whole (i.e. the making of a
film), rather than his own individual performance or those of his fellow cast
I guess it underlined the fact that he was a "traditional" actor who happened
to do more film than live work. But other that the fact that he was on set
rather than a stage, he treated it as an acting job that was finished when the
director called "cut". He wouldn't want to watch a film of himself acting any
more than you or I would be interested in watching a film of ourselves working
from two years ago.
Wish I could remember who it was now. Someone like Alec Guinness, perhaps?
Anyway, it's probably not important. He was very good all the same, whoever
