Peter Lorre, John Huston, and Humphrey Bogart making The Maltese Falcon (1941)

The directing of a picture involves coming out of your individual loneliness and taking a controlling part in putting together a small world. A picture is made. You put a frame around it and move on. And one day you die. That is all there is to it.

—John Huston
