"...it is pointless to be 'superb' in a commercial failure, and most of the films which I have deliberately chosen to make in the last few years were, by and large, just that.  Or so I was told by the businessmen....and if you don't make money at the Box Office, you are not asked back to play again..."

 

The actor?  (He's British)

:mellow:  One question, Notan:

Is the quote you posed from a script or performance?  There are two other threads that handle such material.  This thread is mostly devoted to comments from other sources.  Interviews, talk show guest shots, news blurbs, even biographies or autobiographies are the sources of most of the material on this thread. 

 

Is that the kind of source your material is from?

Hi, FB.

 

The quote is not from a movie, but from a conversation between two well-known film folk. From the way you described the thread's criteria, I think the quote will fit right in.

When Kurosawa got to meet John Ford, a director commonly said to be the most influential to Kurosawa, Ford simply said, "You really like rain." Kurosawa responded, "You've really been paying attention to my films."
