[on Herbert Ross
] I think Herb Ross is the best director I've worked with in films. The others just don't understand my material as well.
Almost every one of his 30-plus plays, mostly Broadway comedies, has also been adapted into a motion picture-- the greatest such achievement of any playwright/author, even surpassing William Shakespeare
As a result, Simon has received more Oscar and Tony nominations than any other writer in the history of show business.
