Personal Quote:

[on John Hirsch after a dispute on the King of Kensington (1975) set]: He had the same explosiveness as I did. He and I were one. He was eccentric, but he was practical too. He didn't make [the production staff] apologize. He just came to me and said, 'I'm apologizing. You're right. Everybody knows what you're doing for the guest stars. Please keep it up'. See more »
