Directing 'Lincoln' (2012)
Directing Lincoln (2012)

I love the idea of not being an independent filmmaker. I’ve liked working within the system. And I’ve admired a lot of older directors who were sort of “directors for hire.” Like Victor Fleming was in a contract all those years to Metro and Selznick and Mayer… he made Captain Courageous. And you know, his most famous films: Wizard of Oz and Gone With the Wind.
