Question: In the Terence Stamp movie The Limey, the filmmakers appears to have incorporated clips of an earlier film in which he appeared. Am I right and, if so, what's the name of the movie?


Answer: The Limey (1999) cuts back and forth between the present and the past: In the present, aging English gangster — Terence Stamp — cuts a bloody swath through Southern California in search of the truth behind his estranged daughter's death, and in the flashbacks we see snippets of his relationship with his wife and little girl some 30 years earlier. Rather than cast younger actors to play Stamp and his family in flashbacks, director Steven Soderbergh did indeed use scenes from an older movie, Ken Loach's Poor Cow (1967). Stamp, then in his late 20s, plays a gentle thief.
