Personal Quote:

[on _Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977)_] This picture was made particularly for males, who carry a portable shrine with them of their adolescence, a chalice-of-self that was better then, before the world's affairs, or - in a complex way - sex intruded. See more »


In 1944 the children's play he wrote, entitled "Bobino,", was produced at Manhattan's New School for Social Research, before it moved on to Broadway. It has become notable because it featured a newcomer named Marlon Brando in his very first professional performance, playing a security guard. See more »
