Did You Know


He directed Lindsay Crouse in three films: Prince of the City (1981), The Verdict (1982) and Daniel (1983).


I like being described as the actor's director because it comes primarily from the fact that they open up with me more than they do with most directors.


On all his films he assembles the cast for a two week rehearsal in which they perform the script from beginning to end like a play. This cuts down on the need for repeated takes during filming.
