Gene Hackman: Supreme Badass

"Anybody interested in grabbing a couple of burgers and hittin' the cemetery?"

Royal: I've always been considered an asshole for about as long as I can remember. That's just my style. But I'd really feel blue if I didn't think you were going to forgive me.
Henry Sherman: I don't think you're an asshole, Royal. I just think you're kind of a son of a bitch.
Royal: Well, I really appreciate that.

We’re often told that some actors are hard to work with.  We hear horror stories about temper tantrums and people walking off of the set or feelings getting hurt. This is one of those times.  But the story…. the quotes… the wonderment of it all… it’s just fantastic.  And I wouldn’t have Gene Hackman be any other way.  Also, as if there was any doubt – Bill Murray is the king of the world.
