Robert Aldrich's quotes

  • A director is a ringmaster, a psychiatrist and a referee.
  • [on What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962)] Judging by the initial press reaction. I wasn't sure whether I was going to produce and direct a motion picture or referee a fight.
  • The struggle for self-determination, the struggle for what a character wants his life to be . . . I look for characters who feel strongly enough about something not to be concerned with the prevailing odds, but to struggle against those odds.
  • [on Bette Davis] Now Davis is a tough old broad and you fight. But when you see what she puts on the screen you know it was worth taking all the bull.
  • [on Frank Sinatra] Unpleasant man. No one has yet worked out what really makes him tick. But he sings well.
  • [on Lee Marvin] Look, this feller is a pretty good boozer, he's got a short fuse, but he can be handled okay.
  • [on Burt Lancaster] He has matured gracefully, plays men his own age and understands the need not to win the girl. He is much more tolerant of other people's point of view.
  • [on Lewis Milestone] From Lewis Milestone I learned diplomacy in dealing with actors.
  • [1974 comment on Kim Novak] Is Kim Novak a joke in her own time?
  • [on Charles Chaplin, for whom he worked as assistant director on Limelight (1952)] He's the greatest actor in the world but he doesn't know how to direct.
  • I can't imagine how people, certainly working people, can be Republicans. It amazes me.
  • I don't think violence on film breeds violence in life. Violence in life breeds violence in films.
