Personal Quote:

[on Richard Brooks, 1965]: Brooks is conservative, not in the sense of being right-wing politically (he is nothing if not a liberal), but in the sense that his beliefs are reasoned, not inspired. His attitudes are evolutionary and not Utopian. See more »


Former film critic for "Movie" magazine in the early 1960s and author of 1968 film book "Hollywood, The Haunted House". See more »
