Harrison Treated Butlers Badly

British movie great REX HARRISON spent his life searching for the perfect butler - because he could never find one who would tolerate his outbursts.
The My Fair Lady star went through a succession of butlers and died fearing he'd never found the perfect right-hand man, according to his stepson, actor Jared Harris.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button star explains, "He could never find one who would stay, because he was so appalling.
"He used to send the wine back from his own cellar and then rip into the butler for serving it to him."
