Personal Quote:

[on his film 'Hearts and Minds", which is highly critical of America's role in the Vietnam war] It shouldn't be considered a documentary. It should be considered a disaster epic, for that's what it surely is.


He formed a very successful production company with director Bob Rafelson in the 1960s, known first as Raybert, then later as BBS Productions (for "Bert, Bob & Steve" with the addition of Steve Blauner). He went on to win an Oscar and an Emmy. He decided to quit the business after producing Days of Heaven (1978). See more »
