He said title

Comedy will be outlawed in my lifetime. - Tim Allen.

I've got red hair and freckles, I'm not gonna be Batman, Robin or Spider-Man. - Caleb Landry Jones.

I’d rather not be remembered for Route 66. If I failed trying, at least I tried. - Robert Redford

The Western is always the same, which gives the director tremendous freedom. - Jean Renoir

Was there a contingency plan if a bad match was discovered in post-production of the "one-shot" 1917? "Other than suicide, no” - cinematographer supreme Roger Deakins.

Wizards of the Lost Kingdom poster

The film wasn't so much shot as it was beaten to death. - scenarist Ed Naha on Roger Corman’s 1985 production, Wizards of The Lost Kingdom.

He does seem to attract trouble. -  Eric  Idle on Terry Gilliam.  

The truth is, I don’t actually like making films. - Terry Gilliam.

He says to me, and I guess he said it to other people: You don’t have to say anything that’s in the script. You can say whatever you want. What?! I said: I’m saying every single word that’s in here! I’m saying what you wrote.” He said: Well, OK If you want to, that’s fine, too. - Richard Benjamin on working with Woody Allen.

RIP James Lipton, the soul of Inside The Actors Studio, has died at 93. We only ever met on a phone interview, resulting in annual Exaltation of Christmas cards from James and Kedakai - A rooftop of reindeer, A descent of relatives. A caper of kids. A bouquet of wines… He was my kind of  interviewer - he did his homework. "How do know that?" said so many of his 300 star guests.  (In my day, it used to be: "You're too young to know that!" Not. Any. More).

Check up on all the films - of yesterday, today and tomorrow - that your favourite stars never made... A cast of thousands - 8,063 actors - to click on... More than 40 years in the making!! And 2,502,855 words of spirited text. The ultimate in movie trivia ... Better! Exactly the kind of history that Hollywood deserves. Back to front. Upside-down. Inside out. Full of flashbacks, close-ups, tracking shots (and, alas some badly edited sequences - sorry about that!) forming a fascinating, new and often bizarre flip-side perspective on your treasured movies and stars.

This is the film that bred this site ... after Robert Redford told me he'd planned a little black-white version - with Robert De Niro, and Michael Moriarty as Woodstein.
