One of the curses of automated reply mode in emails.

I didn't ever think Michael Caine was a B actor. But in the interests of
economy, I failed to attribute that remark to Rob. (Who went on to say he
had learnt better after seeing Sleuth (the first one)).

What I actually identify as my own thoughts is the next couple of lines . .

Michael Caine is widely quoted as conceding that he often appeared in
appalling movies - just for the money. Asked what he thought of a dud movie
he'd been in, he says "not much, but I think a lot more of the house it
built for me".
