Personal Quote:

[on the problems shooting Tabu: A Story of the South Seas (1931)]: The relationship between Murnau [director F.W. Murnau] and Flaherty [co-director Robert J. Flaherty] was a strange one. Murnau liked Flaherty, but Flaherty hated Murnau, partly because Murnau was a bit Prussian in manner and very selfish, and partly because of jealousy, as Murnau knew ten times as much about direction as Flaherty.
