Personal Quote:

I don't think you can avoid expressing yourself through what you do. Take the example of even a rotten, hack director. His films are dishonest and pretentious. Yet they're a perfect expression of what he is. Because he made them. And you see him through them. He's a false person. If he were a more open and real person, more honest with himself, he would make good films instead of bad films.

Trivia:

He was the son-in-law of writer, Elaine Dundy, and British theater critic, Kenneth Tynan. See more »
