Happy 116th Birthday, Frank Capra
(May 18, 1897 - September 3, 1991)
“Maybe there really wasn’t an America, maybe it was only Frank Capra.”
- John Cassavetes
“When I see a crowd, I see a collection of free individuals: each a unique person; each a king or a queen; each a story that would fill a book; each an island of human dignity.”
“Film is a disease. When it infects your bloodstream, it takes over as the number one hormone; it bosses the enzymes; directs the pineal gland; plays Iago to your psyche. As with heroin, the antidote to film is more film. “
