"I would say Husbands and Saint Jack and The Killing Of A Chinese Bookie are my three favorite films, of my work. Saint Jack is particularly dear to me, because we got to Singapore with the screenplay—Peter Bogdanovich and I and George Morfogen, his assistant—and we saw that it didn’t work. So every night before shooting, Peter and I and George would meet in his room and write the material to be shot the next day. That’s how we did it. I was as involved as I was with Husbands with John, not just as an actor, but as a creator of the events. That’s how I came into the theater in the first place, actually. That’s what I love. I hate just showing up, hitting a mark, doing your work, and going home. It’s very boring. But being part of the creation of the whole thing is very exciting.”
