"Women's director! Well, I'm very pleased to be considered a master of anything, but remember, for every Jill there was a Jack. People like to pigeonhole you--it's a shortcut, I guess, but once they do, you're stuck with it." --George Cukor in 1979, quoted in his The New York Times obituary, January 26, 1983.

"You have to know when to shut up. A director can talk a lot and theorize and shut off whatever creative thing they [actors] have. You can be quiet, but you can't be inhibited." --George Cukor, quoted in his The New York Times obituary, January 26, 1983.
