Personal Quote:

[1990 comment on King Kong (1976)] The film simply isn't allowed to speak for itself. I was not displeased with the overall picture. It was totally different from the original, which is now considered a classic. That was an enormous thing to overcome in itself. See more »

Trivia:

Directed one Oscar-nominated performance: Fred Astaire in The Towering Inferno (1974). See more »
