If you study both 'Gilligan' and 'Brady,' you will see they are based on a similar philosophy: that it's possible for different kinds of people to learn to live together, either in a family or stuck on an island with no escape.
The odd thing about 'Cripple of Inishmaan' is it's never actually been performed on the island.
I had one of the most outdoorsy childhoods you could imagine. I basically lived in the woods until I was 13. My dad and I built a huge treehouse in our backyard in Chesterfield, about 30 feet in the air. And we'd vacation on an island in Michigan, where I hunted a deer that we ate.
I haven't been on very many vacations, but I like Coronado Island, and Disney World was fun.
I was a choir boy for 3 years in high school at St. George's in Newport, Rhode Island.
I grew up in Pittwater, north of Sydney; Elvina Bay, Scotland Island area. I had to go to school by boat. To get to the mainland, we had to go by boat, so it was just a way of life.
I was born in New York, but I'm of Cuban heritage. Maybe there's a little island in my blood.
I would encourage more development in the boroughs outside of Manhattan as well. I think it's great that this natural emergence has occurred in the lower part of Midtown, but there's tremendous potential in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island as well.
Manhattan is a narrow island off the coast of New Jersey devoted to the pursuit of lunch.
We were on the island of Hawaii. I think I was there three months. It was fantastic. It is not much different than films. It depends on the television show but much of television today is as good or better than most films.
We used two Princess Cruise ships. The Island Princess and The Pacific Princess. They were identical ships.
England in a way is lucky. It's an island, so the frontiers are given by the sea.
If I were planning to be stranded on a desert island, I wouldn't take Freud's books with me, because I've already read them all.
Both of my parents were born into poor families on the island of Cuba. They came to America because it was the only place where people like them could have a chance.
I'd been brought up on... American TV: 'Lou Grant,' 'Starsky & Hutch;' 'Gilligan's Island.'
My story is so boring: Long Island Jewish parents take their daughters to Broadway.
From my experience of shooting 'Tudors' on the island of Ireland, you cannot predict the weather.
Today's preoccupation with physical theories of everything takes a wrong turn from the purpose of science - to question all things relentlessly. Modern physics has become like Swift's kingdom of Laputa, flying absurdly on an island above the earth and indifferent to what is beneath.
Sometimes I feel like doing smaller budget stuff. When I did 'Young Adam', for instance, I'd come out of 'Black Hawk Down' and 'The Island', and I really wanted to be on a small film set. I wanted to be on something intimate and small again, and then 'Young Adam' cropped up in a pile of scripts I was sent.
On a personal note, I was born in Brooklyn. My folks moved out to Long Island when I was quite young, but once a Brooklynite, always a Brooklynite.
I come from a tiny mining town in the rainforest in an island at the end of the world. My grandparents were illiterate.
I was a young kid from Long Island who wanted to do something large with her life, so I can relate to that.
I can remember in the late 1980s and early 1990s how many men with AIDS I saw everywhere in Key West. There were hospices and medical supply stores geared to people with AIDS. It seemed that every sick man who could afford it had headed for the warmth and the tranquillity and the gay-friendliness of the island.
You know, because of the lack of budget, we had to find neighborhoods where time had stopped - kind of stuck in the '50s. And no place had that better than Staten Island.
I never watched 'Harper's Island.'
Martin Luther King, Jr.
