Steven Soderbergh on his first impression of Elliot: "I thought, 'Oh my God, it's Lauren Bacall!' She really had that vibe. I was lookin g for an unknown . . . I wanted no baggage. I thought she was very good at appearing opaque without being uninteresting. I sensed subtext and an inner life, and that's what I was looking for. I thought she was very good at being difficult to read, and I wanted someone who was plausibly attractive, not in that cliched sort of supermodel kind of way." --quoted in THE NEW YORK TIMES, August 18, 1996.

"One of the things I love about Alison is that her face isn't the same way twice. . . In some scenes, she looks pretty and vulnerable. In others, you think this is a tough girl. She could be dangerous." --Director Lee David Zlotoff on Elliott in "The Spitfire Grill", quoted in LOS ANGELES TIMES, August 18, 1996

"At the premiere (of 'Spitfire Grill') I was sitting in the back . . . and there were moments when I asked myself, 'Why did they leave me onscreen so long? Nobody wants to look at me so much'. But when at the end everyone was cheering I was in shock. I thought, Wow, if all thse supposedly jaded New York and L.A. critics are affected like this by the film, I would love for the rest of the country to see it, too." --Alison Elliot in INTERVIEW, September 1996.
