Personal Quotes (2)

[on Marlon Brando] If you consider the people who are myths in their own lifetime - people like James Dean, Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley - he was certainly in that rank. And just to have survived that kind of life to be 80 years old is pretty remarkable. He was a tough guy.
Hits create genres. You know, everybody tries to do the same thing over and over again. And since the public creates hits, they also create genres. Movie studios have never changed. If something is successful, they will say 'give me five of those'. It's like the dress business, or any business.
