Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

(On Mackenna's Gold (1969) and Marooned (1969)] They weren't very good, but they were the best that was offered. I did not do them only for the money. I knew they weren;t worth much when I read the scripts. But as soon as I started working on them, damned if I didn't start believing in them. It just goes to prove you can't be an actor and Pauline Kael at the same time. See more »
