Personal Quote:

[in a letter to his sister] You shouldn't get mad at the New York reviewers. Actually, it's very difficult for a reviewer to give something called I Walked with a Zombie (1943) a good review.

Trivia:

Was a story teller from birth. At 14, during intervals of a basketball game at a local recreation hall he would get up and recite speeches from "Cyrano de Bergerac" until he was arrested. See more »
