Quote of the Day
I think we must quote whenever we feel that the allusion is interesting or helpful or amusing.

Working with Chaplin was very amusing and strange. His films are so funny, but working with him, I found him to be a very serious man.

Film sets are constantly amusing because you really are creating something that is so very surreal, and I kind of like that.

As an actor you get categorized by other people, but it's not like I arrange myself into comedy mode or serious mode. If it's good writing you just have to play it true - if it's funny, it's funny. But obviously you don't want it to be amusing if you're playing Hedda Gabler!
This is one of his most human and most amusing and witty novels. The characters are very Indian. I decided that I wanted to do a comedy, so this was just the right one.

Logan Pearsall Smith
