I've seen him in movies as an actor but not ones he has directed.
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

Has anybody watched both versions of Greed? I have access to both, but really would prefer the shortened version if it's just as brilliant.

The only version I've seen is the one TCM ran almost 15 years ago, with the interpolated stills.
