"My birthdate changes between 1900 and 1920 according to different publications, but the fact remains I was born. The truth is, I don't remember the event. I was told by a reliable source that it was 1913, May 15, in Hungary." --de Toth

On his uncredited work on "Superman", de Toth told Anthony Slide: "They earned the Oscars and I walked away with the best: happy memories."

De Toth's motto was "Don't be careful, have fun."

"I am interested in the most complex things I know of--people. And they're very intricate in their relationships to each other. ... Real violence has nothing to do with hardware, blowing up buildings. Real violence is from within--the violence of people, the violence of Raymond Burr in 'Pitfall'" --Andre de Toth quoted in Moviemaker, April 1998.

"I'll do something one day I'll be proud of. ... I haven't really lived up to what I would like to do. Not yet." --de Toth in his 80s, quoted in Moviemaker, April 1998.
