Quote of the Week

"Those incredible men that we worked for, that seemed to us so inartistic, and so lacking in knowledge of the art part of making a movie. But they had something. And they had something, you don't know what it was, it was a kind of a magic, gambling, intuitive thing. That has gone. We now have oil companies owning the studios; it's all business today. And those men [the old studio heads], they were exasperating, because there was no way of communicating with the way they thought. But they -- boy! -- they gave us our chances. They gambled... Gambling has gone."
