Personal Quote:

I think I'd be very wary about doing another musical. But I'd love to do another western if I found a good story and if I could find good actors - they are getting very rare because it's becoming a sort of second-hand thing now with young actors, where the older ones, people like Gary Cooper, knew about the old west more from personal experience.
