Personal Quote:

[on the failure of Nunzio (1978)] The marketing on the movie fell apart, and then the editing, unghghh, whatever. So when that happened, I said 'I want no part of this city; I want no part of the movie business, they just break your heart.' I'd rather do my little plays in a basement somewhere and have fun, you know? So I just dropped ... off ... the map. See more »
