Personal Quote:

[on the decade-long struggle to get financing for The Stunt Man (1980)] They couldn't figure out if it was a comedy, a drama, if it was a social satire, if it was an action adventure...and, of course, the answer was, 'Yes, it's all those things.' But that isn't a satisfactory answer to a studio executive. See more »
