Festival Reviews

Born: August 25, 1933 in Detroit, Michigan, USA

It’s concentration and luck. There are many prominent people in this business who choose certain types of pictures and play a derivation of a certain character they always play so they are immediately identifiable — and they are commercially successful because of it. I have never pursued that. I just do films that I would pay five bucks to see.
