Personal Quote:

[on the standing ovation an unfinished Beauty and the Beast (1991) received at the New York Film Festival] I remember just being absolutely slack-jawed, stunned, knocked over, goggle-eyed with astonishment. They applauded like they were at a live Broadway show and I had never seen anything like that in my life.

Trivia:

He has directed one film that has been selected for the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant: Beauty and the Beast (1991).
