NOTES

"It was our taste in material, in that, David [Brown] and I were uncannily similar, totally twinlike. In everything else, we were opposites. David is an East Coast intellectual, I'm a West Coast beach guy. I'm a marathon runner and he doesn't ever watch sports on television. Our environments and culture are polar.

"But we responded to the same kinds of material and we both go for commercial potential. Some think that he has more of a high-brow take on material, because of his background and surroundings, but he doesn't. ... we never divided things up--no 'you-do-this' and 'I'll-do-that' mentality. We were always intermingling.

"Most people think that because David's a story person, he confined himself to that and that I did the line producing. That wasn't the case. We each devoted equal time in all functions.

"We've both seen the business change a dozen times--and that was just this week." --Richard D Zanuck quoted in Variety, October 18, 1998.
