Bonus Trivia

.

"Though he has never been--perhaps to his detriment--a self-publicizer, he is nonetheless a slightly mythic figure in show-business circles, known for his gentle solicitude with actors and spectacularly ungentle flare-ups with those who cross them; his penchants for dandyish dress and dining alone in expensive restaurants; and his unlikely reputation as a soft-spoken Don Juan, whose 'serial' (his word) romances have reportedly included Gloria Vanderbilt and Mary Tyler Moore, whom he directed on Broadway in "Whose Life Is It, Anyway?" He is also trailed doggedly by the rumor that he is the son of Orson Welles." --Ben Brantley (Vanity Fair, March 1991).
