Television has done much for psychiatry by spreading information about it, as well as contributing to the need for it.
A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.
Always make the audience suffer as much as possible.
I am to provide the public with beneficial shocks.
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.'
