Personal Quote:

The productiveness of the director-actor relationship depends on the degree to which the actor trusts the director. Unless the actor feels he can safely risk everything he has to give without making himself ridiculous he won't try. He'll play safe until he knows the director will not let him make a fool of himself. See more »

Trivia:

Tried unsuccessfully to launch a project with opera legend Maria Callas, but Callas didn't like the part he offered her, which was that of an old star who desperately tries to return to her successful past. Callas considered herself at the time far too young for such a role, but said she was flattered by his offer. See more »
