Personal Quote:

(On Extreme Prejudice (1987)) I wanted someone who was representative of the tradition of the American West -- taciturn, stoical, enduring. Someone who carried a lot of pain with him. I told Nick, 'The kind of thing I'm talking about is Cooperesque.' I had him look at a lot of Gary Cooper films. See more »

Trivia:

By Hill's own admission, his work on The MacKintosh Man (1973) "wasn't much" and he did it to settle a lawsuit with Warner Bros, with whom he was angry for selling Hickey & Boggs (1972). In addition, he and director John Huston disagreed on how closely to stick to the book on which it was based. See more »
