Pleasure resorts are like film stars and royalty ... embarrassed by the figures they cut in the fantasies of people who have never met them.Doris Lessing Film Stars Sayings By Doris Lessing: Pleasure resorts are like film stars and royalty ... embarrassed by the figures they cut
In this land of unlimited opportunity, a place where, to paraphrase Woody Allen, any man or woman can realize greatness as a patient or as a doctor, we have only one commercial American filmmaker who consistently speaks with his own voice. That is Woody Allen, gag writer, musician, humorist, philosopher, playwright, stand-up comic, film star, film writer and film director.Vincent Canby Film Stars Sayings By Vincent Canby: In this land of unlimited opportunity, a place where, to paraphrase Woody Allen, any man
Basically, independent film doesn't exist anymore. It does if you have two or three stars in your film, but it's just very difficult.Steven Shainberg Film Stars Sayings By Steven Shainberg: Basically, independent film doesn't exist anymore. It does if you have two or three stars
Dustin Hoffman said this one time, that if he hadn't made it as a film star, he would still be happy as a character actor because he was a character actor because of his face from day one, so he would always work in the theater.Denis Leary Film Stars Sayings By Denis Leary: Dustin Hoffman said this one time, that if he hadn't made it as a film
I think India is very passionate about films. It's almost a second religion back home. Due to that, I think film stars are - are really held in great esteem. Not that we're complaining, but I think with that comes a lot of responsibility.Abhishek Bachchan Film Stars Sayings By Abhishek Bachchan: I think India is very passionate about films. It's almost a second religion back home.
I almost choke on my popcorn when I hear film stars, who walk on red carpets as much as the rest of us do on zebra crossings, criticising youngsters who crave fame.Julie Burchill Film Stars Sayings By Julie Burchill: I almost choke on my popcorn when I hear film stars, who walk on red
Where men are forbidden to honour a king they honour millionaires, athletes, or film-stars instead: even famous prostitutes or gangsters. For spiritual nature, like bodily nature, will be served; deny it food and it will gobble poison.C.S. Lewis Film Stars Sayings By C.S. Lewis: Where men are forbidden to honour a king they honour millionaires, athletes, or film-stars instead:
One day, we will look back and wonder how on earth we used to believe that depression was a lifestyle choice, only to be debated and taken seriously when an A List film star took his life, and the world filled with people saying how shocked and saddened they were.Alastair Campbell Film Stars Sayings By Alastair Campbell: One day, we will look back and wonder how on earth we used to believe
The film business is absurd. Stars don't last very long. It's much more interesting to be a proper actor.Tom Courtenay Film Stars Sayings By Tom Courtenay: The film business is absurd. Stars don't last very long. It's much more interesting to
None of you will go to America, none of you will be film stars. And none of you will be working in supermarkets as I heard some of you planning the other day.
Your lives are set out for you. You'll become adults, then before you're old, before you're even middle-aged, you'll start to donate your vital organs.
Kazuo Ishiguro Film Stars Sayings By Kazuo Ishiguro: None of you will go to America, none of you will be film stars. And
I'll remember this to my grave. We all walked into a room to see the screen tests. The first screen test was Marion Hutton's. Then came Janis Paige [who ended up with a part in the film]. Then on the screen came Doris Day. I can only tell you, the screen just exploded. There was absolutely no question. A great star was born and the rest is history.Sammy Cahn Film Stars Sayings By Sammy Cahn: I'll remember this to my grave. We all walked into a room to see the
I never thought of myself as any kind of a film star, as many films as I've made - and I've made some really fun movies with good people. I've always been paired with someone because I'm not really box office, in that carrying-a-picture sense. I've always been busy, but not in the spotlight.Lily Tomlin Film Stars Sayings By Lily Tomlin: I never thought of myself as any kind of a film star, as many films
Movie stars and singers never fully pass away because their images are replayed on film and recordings, over and over.Bill Kurtis Film Stars Sayings By Bill Kurtis: Movie stars and singers never fully pass away because their images are replayed on film
Consider: for all the gobbledegook [film studio] executives spout about backstory, all that we, the audience, want to know is what happens next. That's the only thing that's going on ... Character is nothing other than action, and character-driven means The plot stinks, and you'd better hope the star is popular enough to open the movie in spite of it.David Mamet Film Stars Sayings By David Mamet: Consider: for all the gobbledegook [film studio] executives spout about backstory, all that we, the
Music plays a huge role in the movie. The music in Star Wars, I can't imagine what the movie would have been like without it. It made the film.Joshua Bell Film Stars Sayings By Joshua Bell: Music plays a huge role in the movie. The music in Star Wars, I can't
I am aware that as an actor, I can blame others for the failure of a film, the director, the script, choice of co-stars, timing of the release and so on. But now, as the director, I will have to shoulder all the blame.Anupam Kher Film Stars Sayings By Anupam Kher: I am aware that as an actor, I can blame others for the failure of
I've always been curious what the negotiation is because obviously there's certain movies that every film wants a trailer on, like Star Wars, and I don't know how Disney makes the decisions as to what it does and doesn't put on there. I'm assuming that whatever movies are the same studio as the film get first priority, but then everybody else is fighting for the remaining spots.Simon Kinberg Film Stars Sayings By Simon Kinberg: I've always been curious what the negotiation is because obviously there's certain movies that every
I would define independent film as a movie that is not financed by any of the smaller film companies. Because then, those are movies that in all likelihood are made without stars. And then they have to rely just on the material.Steven Shainberg Film Stars Sayings By Steven Shainberg: I would define independent film as a movie that is not financed by any of
You have film actors doing TV, rap stars doing TV, with everyone kind of crossing the line.Anthony Michael Hall Film Stars Sayings By Anthony Michael Hall: You have film actors doing TV, rap stars doing TV, with everyone kind of crossing
Star Wars film is breaking all previous box office records. (Why might we want to revisit those characters, that narrative, those jokes and tropes again, in this way, right now? I wonder what it will turn out to reveal about the economics and politics of this moment.)Laura Mullen Film Stars Sayings By Laura Mullen: Star Wars film is breaking all previous box office records. (Why might we want to
Can a nation remain healthy, can all nations draw together in a world whose brightest stars are film stars?Winston Churchill Film Stars Sayings By Winston Churchill: Can a nation remain healthy, can all nations draw together in a world whose brightest
We can see the film stars of yesterday in yesterday's films, hear the voices of poest and singers on a record, keep the plays of dead dramatists upon our bookshelves, but the actor who holds his audience captive for one brief moment upon a lighted stage vanishes forever when the curtain falls.Daphne Du Maurier Film Stars Sayings By Daphne Du Maurier: We can see the film stars of yesterday in yesterday's films, hear the voices of
"Joy" is based, albeit loosely, on the life of Joy Mangano, an entrepreneur, inventor and QVC shopping network star with the mega-selling Miracle Mop. Jennifer Lawrence is excellent as Joy, but the film starts off on the wrong foot with woeful depictions of her background as the only sane person in her dysfunctional family.Kenneth Turan Film Stars Sayings By Kenneth Turan: "Joy" is based, albeit loosely, on the life of Joy Mangano, an entrepreneur, inventor and
We now live in a world both in film and television where everything is based on something. You point out, "Star Wars" was an original screenplay, "Raiders of the Lost Ark," an original screenplay, "Ghostbusters" an original screenplay, "Back to the Future." All these things that people love were original ideas many years ago.Alfred Gough Film Stars Sayings By Alfred Gough: We now live in a world both in film and television where everything is based
In the days of Gary Cooper, James Stewart etc, film stars personified the better aspects of human nature.Alexander Walker Film Stars Sayings By Alexander Walker: In the days of Gary Cooper, James Stewart etc, film stars personified the better aspects
All of these stars, the most powerful actors in film, they were all gone in an instant.Chuck Palahniuk Film Stars Sayings By Chuck Palahniuk: All of these stars, the most powerful actors in film, they were all gone in
When I was a film critic, the reason I kind of found it disenchanting was because the things that I wanted to talk about were the ideas in the movie, the theme of it, and contextual elements that weren't necessarily central to the story. But the only thing people really wanted was a plot description and how many stars I'd give it. It didn't matter how much effort you put into writing a piece, they looked at it solely as a consumer's guide toward going or not going to films.Chuck Klosterman Film Stars Sayings By Chuck Klosterman: When I was a film critic, the reason I kind of found it disenchanting was
And a Famous Film Star who is left alone is more alone than any other person has ever been in the whole Histry of the World, because of the contrast to our normal enviromint.Anita Loos Film Stars Sayings By Anita Loos: And a Famous Film Star who is left alone is more alone than any other
15 years later, it's all the TV stars with the film deals, whether it's the cast of Friends or That '70s Show now with Ashton and other people doing stuff.Anthony Michael Hall Film Stars Sayings By Anthony Michael Hall: 15 years later, it's all the TV stars with the film deals, whether it's the
Alec Guinness classed up that movie [Star Wars]. Nobody else in that movie knew how to act. Nobody else had a clue of what they were doing. The young guy was a complete loss, absolutely couldn't act his way out of a bag, but Alec Guinness carried that movie. He was such a class act that it elevated the film to be a joy to watch.David Crosby Film Stars Sayings By David Crosby: Alec Guinness classed up that movie [Star Wars]. Nobody else in that movie knew how
Thank God, 50 years ago I learned that a great song, our entire business is all based on two things; a great song and a great story. Film, television, if you don't have that story, nothing else matters. You don't call anybody else or direct anybody. The same with a song. A great song can make the worst singer in the world a star.Quincy Jones Film Stars Sayings By Quincy Jones: Thank God, 50 years ago I learned that a great song, our entire business is
In Hollywood, the real stars are all in animation. Alvin and the Chipmunks don't throw star fits, don't demand custom-designed Winnebagos, and are a breeze at costume fittings. Cruella DeVille, Gorgo, Rainbow Brite, Gus-Gus, Uncle Scrooge, and the Care Bears are all superstars and they don't have drug problems, marital difficulties, or paternity suits to blacken their images. They don't age, balk at promoting, or sass highly paid directors. Plus, you can market them to death and they never feel exploited. I'd like to do a big-budget snuff film starring every last one of them.John Waters Film Stars Sayings By John Waters: In Hollywood, the real stars are all in animation. Alvin and the Chipmunks don't throw
Growing up in Hollywood meant there were a lot of film stars' kids at my school - but no conspicuous wealth. It wasn't cool to show off that you had money.Zooey Deschanel Film Stars Sayings By Zooey Deschanel: Growing up in Hollywood meant there were a lot of film stars' kids at my
Back when I used to struggle with how I could define myself in the film business, I knew that I'd always remain true to myself and what I wanted to accomplish. The style of action I showcase is quite different from other stars we usually see, but I'm remaining true to myself, and hopefully this comes across.Scott Adkins Film Stars Sayings By Scott Adkins: Back when I used to struggle with how I could define myself in the film
There's a different film being made in every mind. And of course, the star of the film is the mind, the personality, the self.Frederick Lenz Film Stars Sayings By Frederick Lenz: There's a different film being made in every mind. And of course, the star of
Doing that, then doing a lot of theater, which I love. Doing guest stars, did two independent films that are going around to all these festivals. Both of them are going to be at the Lake Tahoe Film Festival.Austin Peck Film Stars Sayings By Austin Peck: Doing that, then doing a lot of theater, which I love. Doing guest stars, did
I had a big problem working with stars, because they are too expensive and have too many demands. Their names help you raise the money to make the movie, but then they demand close-ups. They change things. You end up doing things at their service instead of servicing the film.Alejandro Jodorowsky Film Stars Sayings By Alejandro Jodorowsky: I had a big problem working with stars, because they are too expensive and have
The movie truism is that stars play themselves, while actors play other people - troubled or toxic, and memorably strange. By that definition, Philip Seymour Hoffman, who disappeared into the rabbit hole of his characters' souls, was our generation's anti-star and the chameleonic film actor of his age.Richard Corliss Film Stars Sayings By Richard Corliss: The movie truism is that stars play themselves, while actors play other people - troubled
Never say never, for if you live long enough, chances are you will not be able to abide by the simplest of such injunctions.Gloria Swanson Film Stars Sayings By Gloria Swanson: Never say never, for if you live long enough, chances are you will not be
On Friday evening Martin and Mona went to the United Artists Theatre to see a film already being mentioned for the Academy award. It had three stars, ran a hundred and ten minutes, and bored them both to petrifaction. (In brief, the award was in the bag.)
The Case of the Seven of Calvary
Anthony Boucher Film Stars Sayings By Anthony Boucher: On Friday evening Martin and Mona went to the United Artists Theatre to see a
I think people connect better with TV. stars over film stars.Gil Gerard Film Stars Sayings By Gil Gerard: I think people connect better with TV. stars over film stars.
Film works when a director and a star have a connection. You know, when there's something telekinetic between them, there's a partnership, it's like alter egos. It's like James Stewart and Alfred Hitchcock, or Fellini and Mastroianni. I'm not comparing, I'm just saying, if you can come into a relationship where the director and star have such a bond, it's so much easier to make a movie.Nicolas Winding Refn Film Stars Sayings By Nicolas Winding Refn: Film works when a director and a star have a connection. You know, when there's
I saw [Chennai]. It had the usual Indian elements like autos, packed public buses, hassled traffic cops and tiny shops that sold groceries, fruits, utensils, clothes or novelty items. However, it did feel different. First, the sign in every shop was in Tamil. The Tamil font resembles those optical illusion puzzles that give you a headache if you stare at them long enough. Tamil women, all of them, wear flkowers in their hair. Tamil men don't believe in pants and wear lungis even in shopping districts. The city is filled with film posters. The heroes' pictures make you feel even your uncles can be movie stars. The heroes are fat, balding, have thick moustaches and the heroine next to them is a ravishing beauty.Chetan Bhagat Film Stars Sayings By Chetan Bhagat: I saw [Chennai]. It had the usual Indian elements like autos, packed public buses, hassled
Is America a land of God where saints abide for ever? Where golden fields spread fair and broad, where flows the crystal river? Certainly not flush with saints, and a good thing, too, for the saints sent buzzing into man's ken now are but poor-mouthed ecclesiastical film stars and clich?-shouting publicity agents. Their little knowledge bringing them nearer to their ignorance, ignorance bringing them nearer to death, but nearness to death no nearer to God.Sean O'Casey Film Stars Sayings By Sean O'Casey: Is America a land of God where saints abide for ever? Where golden fields spread
The only difference from one $100 million budget film to another is which of the 12 box stars are getting $20 million to be in it.Dirk Benedict Film Stars Sayings By Dirk Benedict: The only difference from one $100 million budget film to another is which of the
A great many film stars perched on unstable ravine edges in the canyon systems of Los Angeles will, like the cemeteries there, eventually slide down to join their unfortunate fellows in the canyon floors, with mud, cars, and embalmed or living film stars in one glorious muddy mass. We should not lend our talents to creating such spectacular catastrophes ...Bill Mollison Film Stars Sayings By Bill Mollison: A great many film stars perched on unstable ravine edges in the canyon systems of
Here it is undeveloped, a roll of film with all its mysteries locked up. I never took it anyplace, just left it waiting in a drawer dreaming of stars. That was our time, to see if Lottie Carson was who we thought she was, all those shots we took, cracking up, kissing with our mouths open, laughing, but we never finished it. We thought we had time, running after her, jumping on the bus and trying to glimpse her dimple through the tired nurses arguing in scrubs and the moms on the phone with the groceries in the laps of the kids in the strollers. We hid behind the mailboxes and lampposts half a block away as she kept moving through her neighborhood, where I've never been, the sky getting dark on only the first date, thinking all the while we'd develop it later.Daniel Handler Film Stars Sayings By Daniel Handler: Here it is undeveloped, a roll of film with all its mysteries locked up. I
Ninety-nine per cent of traditional English literature concerns people who never have to worry about money at all. We always seem to be watching or reading about emotional crises among folk who live in a world of great fortune both in matters of luck and money; stories and fantasies about rock stars and film stars, sporting millionaires and models; jet-setting members of the aristocracy and international financiers.James Kelman Film Stars Sayings By James Kelman: Ninety-nine per cent of traditional English literature concerns people who never have to worry about
'Badmaash Company' and 'Delhi Belly' was about friends, and I was part of the gang. And yes, they did have stars playing the lead! You do need a star to sell a film; and playing the second lead doesn't bother me.Vir Das Film Stars Sayings By Vir Das: 'Badmaash Company' and 'Delhi Belly' was about friends, and I was part of the gang.
A lot of what is famous about film making are the movie stars and what is considered a movie star is a lot of great acting, but also a lot of physical beauty.Kelli O'Hara Film Stars Sayings By Kelli O'Hara: A lot of what is famous about film making are the movie stars and what
There is a whole bunch of great British actors of my age who aren't film stars or theatre actors; they're very much both.Harry Lloyd Film Stars Sayings By Harry Lloyd: There is a whole bunch of great British actors of my age who aren't film
People's instinct when they hear someone is madly obsessed with Star Wars or Harry Potter or something like that, they think that it's odd and not as cool as being a massive sports fan or film nerd. But I think it's amazing and something that should be celebrated and definitely not looked down on or misunderstood.Tom Felton Film Stars Sayings By Tom Felton: People's instinct when they hear someone is madly obsessed with Star Wars or Harry Potter
I am not going to do a film based on a bad scenario just to make a big Hollywood film or work with Hollywood stars.Park Chan-wook Film Stars Sayings By Park Chan-wook: I am not going to do a film based on a bad scenario just to
I've stopped going to see art films because every critic gives them four stars and say things like 'masterpiece,' 'spellbinding' and 'mesmerizing.' I mean, they're doing that with my film, but I don't want to use those blurbs. Critical reviews aren't worth too much anymore because just about every film can get one or two of them.Terry Zwigoff Film Stars Sayings By Terry Zwigoff: I've stopped going to see art films because every critic gives them four stars and
What is this film (Mirror) about?It is about a Man. No, not the particular man whose voice we hear from behind the screen, played by Innokentiy Smoktunovsky. It's a film about you, your father, your grandfather, about someone who will live after you and who is still "you". About a Man who lives on the earth, is a part of the earth and the earth is a part of him, about the fact that a man is answerable for his life both to the past and to the future. You have to watch this film simply, and listen to the music of Bach and the poems of Arseniy Tarkovsky; watch it as one watches the stars, or the sea, as one admires a landscape. There is no mathematical logic here, for it cannot explain what man is or what is the meaning of his life. (Sculpting in Time)Andrey Tarkovsky Film Stars Sayings By Andrey Tarkovsky: What is this film (Mirror) about?It is about a Man. No, not the particular man
I think the contrast between these two in the professional world of cinema mattered to me. One who has reached the ultimate point of being a star, who knows how to do everything very well, facing another person who would throughout the making of the film transfer his anxiety to both of us, to me and to Juliette, as to whether or not he would be capable of fulfilling his role. This in itself created a challenge that was actually very good for me, since I hadn't ever counterposed two such performers before, creating that challenge between someone who knows their part and someone who doesn't.Abbas Kiarostami Film Stars Sayings By Abbas Kiarostami: I think the contrast between these two in the professional world of cinema mattered to
The film's title star, Christian Bale, told me in June that he'd signed a multi-picture contract. When I caught up with Batman Begins ... All I can tell you is, we're talking. There was quite an air of secrecy around the development of 'Batman Begins,' and there will be even more around the development of another film, if they move forward.Christopher Nolan Film Stars Sayings By Christopher Nolan: The film's title star, Christian Bale, told me in June that he'd signed a multi-picture
First there was Caine's patently false "confession." Then there was the fact that the FAYZ Legal Defense Fund racked up three million dollars in its first two weeks. Then there was a judicial panel that took statements from eminent scientists and concluded that the FAYZ was in fact a separate universe and thus not covered under California law.
Finally, there was a shift in public opinion following the involvement of the two popular movie stars, the McDonald's documentary starring Albert Hillsborough, the likelihood of a major Hollywood feature film, and the kiss seen round the world. Polls now showed 68 percent of Californians wanted no criminal charges brought against the FAYZ survivors.
The kiss alone would have wrecked the career of any prosecutor or politician who had anything bad to say about Astrid Ellison or Sam Temple.
Michael Grant Film Stars Sayings By Michael Grant: First there was Caine's patently false "confession." Then there was the fact that the FAYZ
In the early days of film, fans used to idolize a whole star - they would take one star and love everything about that star ... Today people can idolize a star in one area and forget about him in another. A big rock star might sell millions and millions of records, but then if he makes a bad movie ... forget it.Andy Warhol Film Stars Sayings By Andy Warhol: In the early days of film, fans used to idolize a whole star - they
I'm a huge film star ... but you have to hurry to the movies, because I usually die in the first 15 f
ing minutes. I'm the only guy I know who died in a f
ing Muppet movie.
Billy Connolly Film Stars Sayings By Billy Connolly: I'm a huge film star ... but you have to hurry to the movies, because
Why do you act? You act for an audience. In the theatre, you're in their presence. Film stars don't know what it is to have an audience.Ian McKellen Film Stars Sayings By Ian McKellen: Why do you act? You act for an audience. In the theatre, you're in their
The Apollo pictures of the whole Earth conveyed to multitudes something well known to astronomers: On the scale of the worlds - to say nothing of stars or galaxies - humans are inconsequential, a thin film of life on an obscure and solitary lump of rock and metalCarl Sagan Film Stars Sayings By Carl Sagan: The Apollo pictures of the whole Earth conveyed to multitudes something well known to astronomers:
The first Star Wars movie was one of six original stories I had written in the form of two trilogies. After the success of Star Wars, I added another trilogy. So now there are nine stories. The original two trilogies were concieved of as six films of which the first film was number four.George Lucas Film Stars Sayings By George Lucas: The first Star Wars movie was one of six original stories I had written in
Rather than spend millions getting film stars, I am quite happy to be brand ambassador myself.Vijay Mallya Film Stars Sayings By Vijay Mallya: Rather than spend millions getting film stars, I am quite happy to be brand ambassador
The Average Occidental- be he a democrat or a Fascist, a Capitalist or a Bolshevik, a manual worker or an intellectual- knows only one positive "religion", and that is the worship of material progress, the belief that there is no other goal in life than to make that very life continually easier or, as the current expression goes, "independent of nature". The temples of this "religion" are the gigantic factories, cinemas, chemical laboratories, dancing halls, hydro- electric works; and its priests are bankers, engineers,film stars, captains of industry, record-airmen. The unavoidable result of this craving after power and pleasure is the creation of hostile groups armed to the teeth and determined to destroy each other whenever their respective interests come to clash. And on the cultural side the result is the creation of a human type whose morality is confined to the question of practical utility alone, and whose highest criterion of good and evil is material progress.Muhammad Asad Film Stars Sayings By Muhammad Asad: The Average Occidental- be he a democrat or a Fascist, a Capitalist or a Bolshevik,
Concert pianists get to be quite chummy with dead composers. They can't help it. Classical music isn't just music. It's a personal diary. An uncensored confession in the dead of night. A baring of the soul. Take a modern example. Florence and the Machine? In the song 'Cosmic Love,' she catalogs the way in which the world has gone dark, distorting her, when she, a rather intense young woman, was left bereft by a love affair. 'The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out.Marisha Pessl Film Stars Sayings By Marisha Pessl: Concert pianists get to be quite chummy with dead composers. They can't help it. Classical
In Hollywood, story content of movies follows a hierarchy of power, not the relative quality of various ideas. Hollywood does not lack for quality writing. It's just that quality writing commonly has to be sacrificed in order to propel a film into production. A studio needs a star and a director to make a film, so those are the folk who'll define the content. If they don't have the same creative sensibilities, then the content will change.Terry Rossio Film Stars Sayings By Terry Rossio: In Hollywood, story content of movies follows a hierarchy of power, not the relative quality
Like the he-man movie stars who turn out to be queer ... or the silent-film actors whose voices sound terrible recorded
the audience only wants a limited amount of honesty. [ellipses original]
Chuck Palahniuk Film Stars Sayings By Chuck Palahniuk: Like the he-man movie stars who turn out to be queer ... or the silent-film
I don't think much of most of the films I made, but being a movie star was something I liked very much.Joan Bennett Film Stars Sayings By Joan Bennett: I don't think much of most of the films I made, but being a movie
The film makers are the true movie stars.Logan Lerman Film Stars Sayings By Logan Lerman: The film makers are the true movie stars.
The street lamps and illuminated signs were all extinguished, and on impulse everybody looked into the sky. The frogs and crickets fell quiet to the count of five before they began to sing again. The smaller stars were spread across the darkness in a fine white powder, and the brighter ones pierced the air like nail points. In Andrew Brady's yearbook she wrote: The thing I will always remember about you is the time we were watching the film strip in Miss Applebome's class, and the lights were out, and you sat behind me scratching my back with your fingers.Kevin Brockmeier Film Stars Sayings By Kevin Brockmeier: The street lamps and illuminated signs were all extinguished, and on impulse everybody looked into
A lot of film stars are just playing themselves in different frocks.Imelda Staunton Film Stars Sayings By Imelda Staunton: A lot of film stars are just playing themselves in different frocks.
Out of perverseness, I jumped on the subway and went down to a sound stage on Fourth Street to watch the shooting of Kay Doubleday's big strip scene in Mad Dog Coll, a gangster film that can still, to my embarrassment, be seen occasionally on late-night TV... Kay Doubleday was in my class at Lee Strasberg's; it was in the interest of art, I told myself, to watch her prance down a ramp, singing and stripping her heart out.Brooke Hayward Film Stars Sayings By Brooke Hayward: Out of perverseness, I jumped on the subway and went down to a sound stage
We have a conservative government that only thinks in terms of efficiency. They are spending a lot of money on military expenses and less and less on culture. My position is that culture can actually be economically viable. When I make a film, the film costs $3 million. Now, in Quebec, it grossed $3.5 million, which is a small film. It's not a comedy. There are no stars in it. And, it still grosses $3.5 million. That's just in Quebec.Philippe Falardeau Film Stars Sayings By Philippe Falardeau: We have a conservative government that only thinks in terms of efficiency. They are spending
With pop stars or film stars, we become the object of people's self-definition, as well as the object of sexual definition.George Michael Film Stars Sayings By George Michael: With pop stars or film stars, we become the object of people's self-definition, as well
A lavish colored evocation of Hollywood now gone, as shown through an afternoon in the milieu of the 1920's film star.Kenneth Anger Film Stars Sayings By Kenneth Anger: A lavish colored evocation of Hollywood now gone, as shown through an afternoon in the
There are many critics who invite me on their show, and I have told them that when my film releases, you will give it one-and-a-half star rating. That's fine. There's no issue because stars will matter when I'm planning to open a five star hotel. When I'm making films, I don't need stars.Rohit Shetty Film Stars Sayings By Rohit Shetty: There are many critics who invite me on their show, and I have told them
I wasn't creative enough to imagine my first novel becoming a film directed by Alexander Payne. Nor did I consider the possibility of seeing Hollywood stars moving through my personal version of Hanalei town: going to Tahiti Nui, rehearsing a scene in front of my cousin's cottages, driving the snaky roads.Kaui Hart Hemmings Film Stars Sayings By Kaui Hart Hemmings: I wasn't creative enough to imagine my first novel becoming a film directed by Alexander
I am and will always be a HUGE Star Wars Geek and wanted to study film making. I really am not a fan of writing- I prefer storytelling and rather jump to storyboards to relay my vision then a lot of wordy words.Holly Golightly Film Stars Sayings By Holly Golightly: I am and will always be a HUGE Star Wars Geek and wanted to study
Cinema isn't just a good medium for translating graphic novels. It's specifically a good medium for superheroes. On a fundamental, emotional level, superheroes, whether in print or on film, serve the same function for their audience as Golden Age movie stars did for theirs: they create glamour.Virginia Postrel Film Stars Sayings By Virginia Postrel: Cinema isn't just a good medium for translating graphic novels. It's specifically a good medium
Here are the things that do fill me: a night sky,
endless and rammed with stars. The soaring
of a soundtrack over a triumphal point
in a film trailer, something inside me stirring
like an animal. Dark roads and cosy cars,
and imagining having somebody I loved
enough to distract me in the front seat.
Helplessness, sometimes. Anger, always.
Elisabeth Hewer Film Stars Sayings By Elisabeth Hewer: Here are the things that do fill me: a night sky,endless and rammed with stars.
You get pigeonholed. Some people are film stars, and some are theatre stars who do one-off telly. Somehow, I get into long-running series.Kevin Whately Film Stars Sayings By Kevin Whately: You get pigeonholed. Some people are film stars, and some are theatre stars who do

I'm not going to star in every one of my movies. But I'm telling you [pounds fists] what I will bring to this film industry is the same thing I brought to the record industry when I came into it.

A film star is a kind of public monument, and everyone's staring at them, and they've kind of got railings around them, and they're rather miserable most of the time.Stephen Fry Film Stars Sayings By Stephen Fry: A film star is a kind of public monument, and everyone's staring at them, and
Of all the jaw-droppingly beautiful women who've become genuine movie stars, none has had a longer film career (62 years), has been filmed in Technicolor more often (34 times), has had a more versatile group of leading men (from John Wayne to John Candy) or has spent more time held captive on a pirate ship than our TCM Star of the Month for July, the magnificent red-headed Maureen O'Hara.Robert Osborne Film Stars Sayings By Robert Osborne: Of all the jaw-droppingly beautiful women who've become genuine movie stars, none has had a
We applaud the people who are film stars, who get elected to an office, who are very athletic, the small group who play with power in a very limited way. But we're completely oblivious to what can be done to the infinite realities that exist in front of us. We deny them.Frederick Lenz Film Stars Sayings By Frederick Lenz: We applaud the people who are film stars, who get elected to an office, who
I don't think you can name a good picture where the production or the possible promotion isn't "cast-contingent." That means the film needs not just star power but star box office power.Larry Gelbart Film Stars Sayings By Larry Gelbart: I don't think you can name a good picture where the production or the possible
In The New Biographical Dictionary of Film, David Thomson argues that Brennan should have won awards for even better performances in To Have and Have Not (1944), My Darling Clementine (1946), Red River (1948), The Far Country (1955), and Rio Bravo (1959). Thomson counts no less than twenty-eight high caliber Brennan performances in still more films, including These Three (1936), Fury (1936), Meet John Doe (1941), and Bad Day At Black Rock (1955). Brennan worked with Hollywood's greatest directors - John Ford, Howard Hawks, William Wyler, King Vidor, and Fritz Lang - while also starring in Jean Renoir's Hollywood directorial debut, Swamp Water (1941). To discuss Brennan's greatest performances is also to comment on the work of Gary Cooper, Henry Fonda, Dana Andrews, Spencer Tracy, John Wayne, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Anne Baxter, Barbara Stanwyck, Lana Turner, Linda Darnell, Ginger Rogers, Loretta Young, and many other stars.Carl Rollyson Film Stars Sayings By Carl Rollyson: In The New Biographical Dictionary of Film, David Thomson argues that Brennan should have won
Of course, fairies are all imported in North America. We have no native fairies.

I did a dance sequence in my second short film, which was my best short film, called 'Hairway to the Stars,' and I think Chris Wink, the founder of Blue Man Group, was in that.

I grew up in a town with no movie theater. TV was my only link to the outside world. Film wasn't such a big deal to me. It was TV. So much so, that when I meet TV stars now ... Not my co-workers, but real TV stars, I get nervous. I freak out around them.DJ Qualls Film Stars Sayings By DJ Qualls: I grew up in a town with no movie theater. TV was my only link
It wasn't long after I began writing Star Wars that I realized the story was more than a single film could hold. As the saga of the Skywalkers and Jedi Knights unfolded, I began to see it as a tale that could take at least nine films to tell - three trilogies - and I realized, in making my way through the back story and after story, that I was really setting out to make the middle story.George Lucas Film Stars Sayings By George Lucas: It wasn't long after I began writing Star Wars that I realized the story was
