Richard Fleischer's quotes

  • The Happy Time (1952) was exactly the kind of film I was looking for - a human comedy about a young boy's coming of age. No melodrama, no murders, no evil wooden puppets!
  • Every silver lining has a black, ugly cloud hanging over it.
  • [on working with Arnold Schwarzenegger on Conan the Destroyer (1984)] Arnold has done a fantastic job -- and real progress in this art of acting, but as he has an accent I've been obliged to work him twice as hard.
  • [on "Fantastic Voyage" (1966)]: The whole film took about a year to make - there were hundreds of days of actual shooting on it. But, even so, I love making big films. They're a strain, but then, making any film is a strain.
