"I enjoy comedy very much. I think if you can get people to laugh, they may cry, and if they have experienced one emotion, the other becomes larger. I think that happens with 'Hawks' because you have to laugh at some of the antics; then suddenly, you are gripped by the emotion of what is really happening underneath. The scene in the morgue is one of the trickiest I have ever directed. It's wonderfully funny, very well written and well played. I staged it very carefuly so that it was tasteful, but it's on the borderline. Holding a corpse's feet in the air is, let's face it, a little dangerous!" --Robert Ellis Miller quoted in the press materials from "Hawks"
