Personal Quote:

With very few exceptions, the best original scenarios have been written either by writers who knew the cinema particularly well, or by professional film workers. Although it may seem at first sight that anybody should be able to write a film scenario, experience shows that good scenarios are very rare. See more »

Trivia:

When Clair first arrived at Universal, he wanted to do a picture with W.C. Fields and Deanna Durbin. The studio did not think it was a good idea, and Clair did "Flame of New Orleans.". See more »
