About his experience on "Birdman of Alcatraz", which he left soon after shooting began: "Had I known that Burt Lancaster was to be de facto producer, I do not think I would have accepted the assignment as he had a reputation for quarreling with better directors than I. But Harold Hecht, the credited producer, had assured me that there would be no interference from Lancaster. This did not prove to be the case." --Charles Crichton quoted in Film Dope, Number 8.
