Personal Quote:

[on the screenplay for The Manchurian Candidate (1962)] It breaks every single known rule. It's got dream sequences, flashbacks, narration out of nowhere. When we got in trouble, it just had a voice explaining stuff. Everything in the world that you're told not to do. But that was part of its genetic code, the secret of the crossword puzzle.
