Personal Quote:

The trick, I discovered, was not to be an assistant director, but to be the director's assistant.

Trivia:

For this and other reasons the production was moved to England, and Hamilton, a "tax exile" who could only be in England for 30 days a year, had to drop out and was replaced by Richard Donner.
