Richard Farnsworth's quotes

  • But I don't really care for directors flaring up and trying to humble some actor, which they would do to try and make an example out of them so everybody else would stay on the ball--and [David Lynch] wasn't anything like that.
  • No, I didn't audition, I didn't even know David Lynch until the week before I started the film.
  • I worked with Cecil B. DeMille quite a few times.
  • I worked for Sam Peckinpah on quite a bit of action in his films, and he got excited once in a while.
  • I worked for John Ford, Howard Hawks, Henry Hathaway, Raoul Walsh--I worked for some real good directors.
  • I was a stunt man for 35 years.
  • [about The Ten Commandments (1956)] I don't know if you saw the parting of the Red Sea with the chariots on the horses, I did stuff like that.
  • David Lynch was very good, very patient with us, and the reaction in the United States seems pretty good.
  • [about his fellow stuntman, the legendary Boyd Stockman] One of the most underrated stuntmen ever . . . one of the best all-around hands.
