"I'm a rebel. That's why the young kids like my films. I've been fired from almost every place I've ever worked. I resent authority."--Don Siegel ("New York Times", 1972 interview)

"A movie-industry maverick with an un-Hollywoodlike sympathy for bad guys, Siegel had an important influence on younger filmmakers. Both Sam Peckinpah and John Cassavetes worked for him and absorbed the off-hand, improvisatory style of his movies."--Matthew Flamm ("New York Post" obituary, April 24, 1991)

Siegel's 1964 film "The Killers" was the first movie to be made for the small screen, but was rejected for TV broadcast because of excessive violence and released to theaters instead.
