[about a lunch encounter with Richard Burton
] Richard Burton had great talent. He's ruined his great gifts. He's become a joke with a celebrity wife. Now he just works for money, does the worst shit. And I wasn't rude. To quote Carl Laemmle
, "I gave him an evasive answer. I told him, 'Go fuck yourself'."
Last completed work as director was "The Orson Welles Show" a never broadcast television show.
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.
