#Quote
1[on being the stuntman for John Wayne in In Harm's Way (1965)] Otto [Otto Preminger] treated the cast like they were dirt, except Wayne. The crew hated him. I thought, 'If I ever become a director, I don't ever want to do that crud. Yeah, I learned a lot of things from those big, big directors. And a lot of it was what I didn't want to do.
2[on Burt Reynolds] Burt's a very private person. And he has the capacity for loyalty and caring. Here's a man who has made it okay and he forgets no one he's ever cared for -- men or women. He certainly has tried to keep me from breaking my neck in all the years I've been doubling him.

#Trademark
1Usually ends his films by showing outtakes during the credits
2His films feature many stunts (car chases, fights, etc)
