Famous quotes containing the words film and/or industry:

    A good film script should be able to do completely without dialogue.
    David Mamet (b. 1947)

    The Founding Fathers in their wisdom decided that children were an unnatural strain on parents. So they provided jails called schools, equipped with tortures called an education. School is where you go between when your parents can’t take you and industry can’t take you.
    John Updike (b. 1932)
