Personal Quote:

When I was scouting Rudy (1993), I just thought, "Oh my gosh, they've got to let us shoot here [on the Notre Dame campus]." There's just no other place to do it. There are other tunnels in other stadiums, but not with Touchdown Jesus behind them. I remember walking in that stadium one night, and you could almost feel the ghosts of that place. See more »

Trivia:

Starting as associate producer of Hill Street Blues (1981), he graduated to directing his first episode in Season 2. He almost got fired after one day. Boss Steven Bochco went ballistic when he realized that Anspaugh had only shot what he thought was a perfect single master, neglecting to capture enough coverage. See more »
