Personal Quote:

[As a perfectionist who strove for naturalism among his actors] When people tell me the direction was wonderful, I know I've failed. The audience should be entranced, hypnotized, transported like children listening to a fairy tale.

Trivia:

Directed 6 different performers in Oscar-nominated performances: Arthur O'Connell, Don Murray, Red Buttons, Marlon Brando, Miyoshi Umeki, Charles Boyer. Umeki and Buttons won for their supporting performances in Sayonara (1957). See more »
