"I can’t talk about Hollywood. It was a horror to me when I was there and it’s a horror to look back on. I can’t imagine how I did it. When I got away from it I couldn’t even refer to the place by name. ‘Out there’ I called it.” Dorothy Parker
“Hollywood is a place that attracts people with massive holes in their souls.” Julia Phillips, author of ‘You’ll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again’
“I can no longer continue to work with 15th Century Fox” Jean Renoir, on dealing with the stupidity, reactionary philistinism and nepotist greed of Hollywood, when trying to make films there
