Personal Quote:

"That the film turned out to be coherent is a miracle. That it is successful proves there is a God." [on directing Beverly Hills Cop (1984).

Trivia:

He was originally going to direct Rain Man (1988) but abruptly bailed when production was due to start due to "creative differences". Spielberg stepped in but left after a few months, followed by Sidney Pollack who eventually left as well, leaving the project without a director until Barry Levinson signed on. See more »
