Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on his life after directing Gummo (1997) ] I felt like Clint Eastwood except you know, from a different time and different place. I'm thinking about the Clint Eastwood with the orangutan [Every Which Way but Loose (1978)]. It's hard to say things without coming off in a certain way, but at a young age, I felt very driven. All I ever wanted to be is a soldier of cinema. See more »

Briefly changed his name to Laird Henn. It never stuck, but there is a song by the band Sun City Girls that contains a phone message left by Harmony on one of the members' answering machines, where he introduces himself as Laird Henn. See more »
