Personal Quote:

[on Amadeus (1984)] I thought it was a great play - the play really worked for me. He [Milos Forman] said, "Well, what about a picture?" I said, "It's not a picture, I don't think it's a picture - there's not enough about Mozart for me." And then Milos hit me on the arm - I still have the bruises even though that was 20 years ago - he said, "That's right! It needs music, Mozart and music." See more »

Trivia:

In order to light all the opera house chandeliers in Amadeus (1984), Zaentz contacted the Vatican's candlemaker, who agreed to supply the production with the thousands of candles necessary for the scene. See more »
