Austrian-born American motion-picture scenarist, director and producer, 1906-2002

A director must be a policeman, a midwife, a psychoanalyst, a sycophant and a bastard.


She was an absolute genius as a comedic actress, with an extraordinary sense for comedic dialogue. It was a God-given gift. Believe me, in the last fifteen years there were ten projects that came to me, and I'd start working on them and I'd think, 'It's not going to work, it needs Marilyn Monroe.' Nobody else is in that orbit; everyone else is earthbound by comparison.


They've tried to manufacture other Marilyn Monroes and they will undoubtedly keep trying. But it won't work. She was an original.

Hollywood didn't kill Marilyn Monroe, it's the Marilyn Monroes who are killing Hollywood.


It used to be that we in films were the lowest form of art. Now we have something to look down on. (Of Television)


France is a country where the money falls apart in your hands but you can't tear the toilet paper.
