Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I did it strictly for the money. I was flat broke. It's very pleasant not having to worry about grocery bills for the first time in my life. I just wish I'd had this kind of success with something I personally found more meaningful...I do find it horrifying how many people believe all this silliness. [Explaining why he wrote The Omen (1976)]
