Did You Know?
[1976 comment on Luis Bunuel] I think today there are too many directors taking themselves seriously; the only one capable of saying anything really new and interesting is Luis Bunuel. He's a very great director.
A descendant of the 13th Century ruling dynasty of Milan, he received an aristocratic education, notably horsebreeding and the classics (which included painting, music and theatre). He played the cello and visited La Scala from an early age.
Frequently collaborated with Burt Lancaster
