Trailer, MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON (1939)

Acting changes the inner spirit. It’s fulfilling, but psychologically very costly. You can’t steal enough money in a lifetime to make up for the damage. I’m ashamed for the bitterness it created in me, but it exists. Even when you’re successful it’s hard to rise above it. It’s like a growth.

George C. Scott

Me temperamental? I never was. Proof of that is that I made four pictures with Willie Wyler, who is a very demanding director. I made two with Rouben Mamoulian who is the same. Two with Ernst Lubitsch, such a dear man.
