Hackman Comfortable elegance for the dinner table VideoForgotten Notes
When I saw those actors, I felt I could do that. But I was in New York for about eight years before I had a job.
I sold ladies shoes, polished leather furniture, drove a truck. I think that if you have it in you and you want it bad enough, you can do it. Dysfunctional families have sired a number of pretty good actors.
People in the street still call me Popeye, and The French Connection was 15 years ago. I wish I could have a new hit and another nickname.
When you're on top, you get a sense of immortality. You feel you can do no wrong, that it will always be good no matter what the role.
Well, in truth, that feeling is death. You must be honest with yourself. I haven't held a press conference to announce retirement, but yes, I'm not going to act any longer.
I've been told not to say that over the last few years, in case some real wonderful part comes up, but I really don't want to do it any longer I miss the actual acting part of it, as it's what I did for almost fifty years, and I really loved that.
But the business for me is very stressful. The compromises that you have to make in films are just part of the beast, and it had gotten to a point where I just didn't feel like I wanted to do it anymore.
If I could do it in my own house, maybe, without them disturbing anything and just one or two people. And these cops are surrounded by violence all the time.
There were a couple of days when I wanted to get out of the picture. As someone who tried to portray what was given to them in an honest fashion.
I don't know, beyond that. I don't think about that often, to be honest. I'm at an age where I should think about it. There isn't any movie stuff except a poster downstairs next to the pool table of Errol Flynn from The Dawn Patrol I'm not a sentimental guy.
I took it for all the wrong reasons, and it turned out to be one of those films that stick around.
I was from that area of the country and knew of that event, strangely enough. We filmed fifty miles from where I was brought up.
So it was a bizarre feeling. I never expected the film to have the kind of legs it's had. I'm disappointed that success hasn't been a Himalayan feeling.
Yeah, that's it. I'm at a place where I feel very good about not having to work all night. Our dreams are usually limited by some kind of reality check and because a guy thinks because he can pluck a guitar a couple of strokes he thinks he's going to be Elvis Presley or whoever.
I'd gotten very depressed after Scarecrow and The Conversation failed to make money. I was drinking and started to say: 'Hell, I'll do movies that will definitely make money and then I'll have plenty of dough.
On missing the role of Dr. Berger in Ordinary People I would've loved it. I didn't turn it down, we couldn't make a deal. I wanted some points and they were willing to give me some, but not enough to make the picture feasible.
Just one of those deals that fell apart. On missing the lead role in Klute I wanted it desperately but Jane Fonda vetoed me.
On losing the role of Mr. Robinson in The Graduate A painful experience. My fault, I guess I didn't understand Mr Robinson because I couldn't make him funny.
That's why I believe it takes ten years to become an actor. Luckily, Bonnie and Clyde was just gonna be released.
If I hadn't had a really good performance under me, that would have really done me great damage. On turning down the role of Lips Manlis in Dick Tracy I'd just come off a picture a couple days before and was starting another in three days.
I was just too tired. You go through stages in your career that you feel very good about yourself. Then you feel awful, like, 'Why didn't I choose something else?
Once, I optioned a novel and tried to do a screenplay on it, which was great fun, but I was too respectful. I was only pages into the novel and I had about 90 pages of movie script going.
I realized I had a lot to learn. I have trouble with direction, because I have trouble with authority. I was not a good Marine. Things parents say to children are oftentimes not heard, but in some cases you pick up on things that your parent would like to see you have done.
I went in the Marines when I was I spent four and a half years in the Marines and then came right to New York to be an actor. And then seven years later, I got my first job.
Hollywood loves to typecast, and I guess they saw me as a violent guy. My early days in Broadway were all comedies. I never did a straight play on Broadway.
It was remade in with Gene Hackman and it was called No Way Out. Ladd asked for Gene Hackman and Mengers, who represented the actor at the time, extracted blood.
