Personal Quote:

[As a perfectionist who strove for naturalism among his actors] When people tell me the direction was wonderful, I know I've failed. The audience should be entranced, hypnotized, transported like children listening to a fairy tale.

Trivia:

Wrote in his autobiography that he was offered the chance to direct My Fair Lady (1964), but the offer was withdrawn when he suggested that some scenes be shot on location in London. See more »
