Personal Quote:

I wanted Rudy (1993) to have a sense of grounded reality. I didn't want to over-glamorize it or sentimentalize it, because there was enough of that just naturally in it. It's so powerful, the imagery combined with the story, that I had to walk a thin line. See more »

Trivia:

His favorite movies include The Ten Commandments (1956), Ben-Hur (1959), El Cid (1961), and Grand Prix (1966). See more »
