[advice to actor Bruce Davison, on the set of Ulzana’s Raid (1972)] You try to please the director, and the cameraman and the soundman, and you’re acting and acting and acting and by the time you come to your close-up, you’ve shot your wad. It’s like making love to a woman: you can’t try to come all at once, son. A bit of a tit here, a bit of an inner thigh there, and you have a performance!
