The night before Billy Wilder began shooting THE MAJOR AND THE MINOR, he called his mentor, Ernst Lubitsch (pictured).
“Tomorrow I start directing my first film, and I will shit my pants.”
The Great Man replied, “I have directed sixty films and I still shit my pants.”
Not to put myself on a level with either of those geniuses, except perhaps in the pants-shitting department, where I fancy I can hold my own with anybody.
THE NORTHLEACH HORROR, my new short film, starts filming today.
