Personal Quote:

[on the Academy Awards snub of The Exorcist (1973), which out of ten nominations won only for Sound and Best Adapted Screenplay (which went to Blatty himself)] The Academy should fold its tent and go back to baking apple strudel or whatever they can do well.

Trivia:

He served in the U.S. Air Force Psychological Warfare Division from 1951 to 1954. See more »
