Costume designer Ann Roth on a recent costuming difficulty: "There was an actress on Broadway recently who was playing a Jew. So I produced a Star of David for her to wear and she said she would never wear something like that. I said 'It's not about what you would wear, sweetheart, but what your character would wear'. I hadn't heard that kind of thing for years--most actors these days will go a long way to nail their characters." --quoted in The London Times, February 14, 2000

"That long period before shooting starts, when you're just sketching on your own, that's the part I love best. Irene Sharif [sic] once said that if you get 75 per cent of what you want on the screen, you're very lucky. I've been very lucky, most of all on 'The Day of the Locust', my all-time favorite. But that blue coat in 'Ripley', you get to see it only for a second, but I'm pretty proud of that, too." --Ann Roth quoted in the London Times, February 14, 2000
