Clarification[edit]

Does anyone know what kind of knighthood he got ? Was it Knight Bachelor or Order of the British Empire or something else ? Michael Drew 02:42, 14 February 2006 (UTC)

May have had something to do with his intelligence service for the empire. Also the experience with real spies and their bureaucratic masters would contribute to the realism of his films on the subject. Interestingly his spy master contributed the lyrics to songs in his movie 'thief of bagdad'. A typical man of his times ranking with Ian Flemming. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.103.62.31 (talk) 17:24, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Deserted?[edit]

Anybody know more about the Lawrence project? TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 23:46, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Confusing Intro Sentence[edit]

"Sir Alexander Korda (born Sándor László Kellner, 16 September 1893 – 23 January 1956),[1][2] the first film director to receive the honour."

This needs to be re-written to emphasize that the "honour" is referring to the formal prefix: "Sir." Perhaps a phrase could be inserted mentioning the date he received the British knighthood. 98.19.180.42 (talk) 04:23, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
