Personal Quote:

[on Elliott Gould's performance in "The Long Goodbye" (1973)]: I thought he did a beautiful job. However, the thing about Elliott is that he isn't tough. His face is gentle, his eyes are kind and he doesn't have that touch of cruelty that you associate with these characters. See more »
