The best scene is the last great scene I did.
The only man who could make a love scene comfortable was Clark Gable. He was born graceful, he knew what to do with his feet and when he took hold of you, there was no fooling around.
I have the impression that the new generation of young people, are coming up on the scene with a sense "ancestorhood", and with more wisdom than was evident before.
I like writing sentences. It’s tactile and exciting. Whereas working at the level of the scene is a more cerebral pleasure.
I’ve always felt that the basic unit of writing fiction is the sentence, and the basic unit of the screenplay is the scene.
I don’t think I ever will do a sex scene because of my religion and my personal standards.
Somebody told me I should put a pebble in my mouth to cure my stuttering. Well, I tried it, and during a scene I swallowed the pebble. That was the end of that.
