Personal Quote:

[on engaging Jane Fonda and Vanessa Redgrave for Lillian Hellman's 'Julia'] Why not? It was perfect symmetry. The two most famous left-wing women of the '70s playing two left-wing women of the '30s. I liked it. Of course, the fact that Jane and Vanessa were both terrific actresses didn't hurt either. Not to mention they both agreed to work cheap.


Not to be confused with another 1970's film producer Richard Roth.
