Did You Know?
[about Tim Holt
, with whom he worked in The Magnificent Ambersons
(1942)] One of the most interesting actors that's ever been in American movies, and he decided to be just a cowboy actor. Made two or three important pictures in his career, but was very careful not to follow them up--went straight back to bread-and-butter westerns . . . he was the most marvelous fellow to work with you can imagine.
Once referred to the audience as "the big, many-headed beast crouching out there in the darkness".
Films that he wrote/directed often revolve around the rise and fall of main characters (Kane, Quinlan, Arkardin) who, in classic Shakespearean style, are unmade by their own vices.
