Personal Quote:

[on Nicholas Ray]: He worked at the top of his physical capacities at all times; every time I've seen him, in my whole life, I always wondered if he wasn't just about ready to crack up. See more »

Trivia:

A couple of years after directing his last feature film, The Destructors (1974) Parrish published his autobiography, "Growing Up In Hollywood", which largely avoids mention of his directing career. The book was a big best-seller and was critically acclaimed, one British critic going so far as to say that it was so well-written, "one wonders if he hasn't been in the wrong business all along.".
