Each film is interlocked with so many other films. You can’t get away. Whatever you do now that you think is new was already done in 1913.

When I first went to L.A. in 1970, there was a little bit of that need in me to buy into, participate in, the dream world of celebrity. It’s almost as if they are like gods and goddesses—that’s the impression they make on you from when you’re four or five years old. That’s the old story.
