From Here to Eternity (1980)$100,000 per episode


1[on working with Vanessa Redgrave in Yanks (1979)] It's been a terrific experience working with somebody as good as she is. An incredible actress. I'm in there with a really high-powered dame, you know. You cut back and forth and Vanessa is incredible. Incredible! She'd survive with Marlon Brando and no woman ever has, except maybe Eva Marie Saint at the beginning.
2[on Robert Redford] I can't stand around like Redford. I'm not that narcissistic. Not that photogenic, either.
