Revenge is sweet and not fattening.
A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.
There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.
Drama is life with the dull bits cut out.

What is drama but life with the dull bits cut out.
These are bagpipes. I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was inspired when he saw a man carrying an indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm. Unfortunately, the man-made sound never equalled the purity of the sound achieved by the pig.
When an actor comes to me and wants to discuss his character, I say, 'It's in the script.' If he says, 'But what's my motivation?, ' I say, 'Your salary.'
I never said all actors are cattle; what I said was all actors should be treated like cattle.
If it's a good movie, the sound could go off and the audience would still have a perfectly clear idea of what was going on.
