Bonus Trivia

.

"In some ways people know too much about how movies are made today. You know, they see everthing behind the scenes. I didn't even know what a piece of film looked like when I went into the cutting room for the first time."---Anne Coates quoted to Los Angeles Magazine, November 2004.
