Personal Quote:

[on Amadeus (1984)] I was surprised at the size of the success. In the '80s, with MTV on the scene, we are having a three-hour film about classical music, with long names and wigs and costumes.

It surprised me. See more »

Trivia:

For many years, Forman was chair of Columbia University's film division. He would take sabbatical years for filmmaking. See more »
