Hollywood Film Industry At A Glimpse

Famous quotes containing the words glimpse, industry, hollywood and/or film:

    There is no man hath a virtue that he hath not a glimpse of, nor any man an attaint but he carries some stain of it.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    As our boys and men are all expecting to be Presidents, so our girls and women must all hold themselves in readiness to preside in the White House; and in no city in the world can honest industry be more at a discount than in this capital of the government of the people.
    Jane Grey Swisshelm (1815–1884)

    That’s one thing I like about Hollywood. The writer is there revealed in his ultimate corruption. He asks no praise, because his praise comes to him in the form of a salary check. In Hollywood the average writer is not young, not honest, not brave, and a bit overdressed. But he is darn good company, which book writers as a rule are not. He is better than what he writes. Most book writers are not as good.
    Raymond Chandler (1888–1959)

    A film is a petrified fountain of thought.
    Jean Cocteau (1889–1963)
