Did You Know?
If I hadn't cut my teeth on that kind of TV [Hill Street Blues (1981) (TV)], I would've never been able to do Hoosiers (1986). No textbook can teach you the stuff I learned on my feet. I'd come to work every day with a detailed game plan, but never executed it--everything went to hell in a hand basket in two hours. It was a crash course in learning how to think on the fly.
Also on Hill Street Blues
(1981), Anspaugh contributed the idea of getting an unusual overhead shot by mounting the camera above the rim during a basketball scene, which helped earn him a Directors Guild directing award for that episode.
