Personal Quote:

[on Streets of Fire (1984)] It was a big action movie that they were going to shoot in Hollywood. Eddie and the Cruisers had been made for five million dollars. So that wasn't really a big film budget wise. Streets of Fire was going to be a big studio movie. It had Walter Hill as director and Diane Lane had signed on and that was all I needed. See more »
