Quote of the Week

“[Francis Ford] Coppola wanted me so much to be in The Godfather. But the stage wasn’t right. I just would have made a lot of money, and when you make a lot of money, it doesn’t help an artist because the more money you have, the more trouble you have. Except to make a film, that’s different, of course, but [John] Cassavetes, it would never affect him… Coppola didn’t have the sensitivity that Cassavetes had. He’s a good director, a nice fella, but he’s no John. Nobody’s a John Cassavetes. Nobody!”

– “Rebels With a Cause: The Timothy Carey-John Cassavetes Partnership,” Filmfax #56 (May/June 1996), article and interview by Ara Corbett
