Mr. Cimino's birthyear has variously been reported as 1938, 1939, 1940, 1941 and 1943. No two sources agree on the year or the day which has also been variously reported as February 3 and November 16. According to a profile in the March 2002 issue of Vanity Fair, Mr. Cimino showed Steve Garbarino a photocopy of his passport which listed February 3, 1952 as his date of birth. Since Yale confirms that Mr. Cimino obtained a BFA in 1961 and an MFA in 1963, that date seems unlikely, Indeed, in the article, Garbarino writes: "Public records, however, put his birth year at 1939, making him 63."
"Hollywood has always been crazy. It's controlled anarchy. But how can you loathe something that has given you so much? I wouldn't have had the life I've had without movies. Anybody who says they're bitter is sick in their soul. They've given up." --Michael Cimino to The Guardian, December 6, 2001.
