When you're working with professional actors


"When you're working with professional actors, it's all about trust. They can do anything you want, it's just a matter of them understanding what you're looking for and the reason why."

Los sueños extraños de Cumbres borrascosas


–Nelly, ¿nunca tienes sueños extraños? -dijo de repente, tras unos minutos de reflexión.  

–Sí, de vez en cuando –contesté.

–Yo también. He tenido algunos sueños en mi vida que se me han quedado grabados para siempre y me han cambiado las ideas; me han atravesado de cabo a rabo, como el vino atraviesa el agua, y han alterado el color de mi mente.  Te voy a contar uno de ellos, pero procura no reírte en ningún momento.

(Emily Brontë, Cumbres borrascosas)

Créanselas porque me las he inventado.


Si en algún momento tropiezan con una historia, o con alguna de las criaturas que transmiten mis libros, por favor créanselas. Créanselas porque me las he inventado.

(Ana María Matute en su discurso de aceptación del Premio Cervantes)

Eli Wallach and Edward G. Robinson


Eli Wallach takes advantage of the studio lights on the set of “MacKenna’s Gold,” to make some stills of tone of his co-stars in the film, Edward G. Robinson.
