#Quote
1I got terribly interested in being a good screenwriter and worked terribly hard at it. The competition was terribly hard - you couldn't make mistakes because there were other writers waiting to step in and fix your script up the way you were fixing somebody else's. One of the first things you had to learn was not to let them break your heart because if you really put yourself into a script and began creating and cared terribly about it, then the producer, director, and the star would go to work on it, and they could break your heart with what they would do to something you were very proud of.
2I don't think David Selznick was in a class with Irving Thalberg. He was the kind of producer who would shoot everything and then really begin making the picture in the cutting room... quite an expensive process, but with David it seemed to work.
