Personal Quote:

[Interview for "Films in Review" in 1985] There's a thrill in performance on the stage that you don't get in a movie. There's a feeling that you are communicating something to an audience that you just don't have during take 16 on a sound stage. A year later you see it on a screen and feel frustrated about things you've missed. Why didn't I do this? Why didn't I do that?
