Did You Know?
[In a 1982 interview with Kenneth Chanko] If I don't think a film has box office potential, I certainly wouldn't consider it. I don't want to make a movie that no one is going to want to see. You don't want to write an article that no one will want to read, do you?"0
Although Foster was good friends with Steve McQueen, and the actor was very disappointed that Foster didn't want to use the big box office megastar in his first film, "McCabe and Mrs. Miller." Foster says he wanted to prove to himself and all concerned that he needed McQueen as a crutch. After that first success, he quickly cast McQueen in his second film, "The Getaway.".
