I would like to be remembered as someone who accomplished useful deeds, and who was a kind and loving person. I would like to leave the memory of a human being with a correct attitude and who did her best to help others.

I lie in bed night after night, praying that it isn’t true… but I know about it now. It’s there. I don’t know how, I don’t know why… but I did love you. I do love you! I resented your plans to marry… maybe because I wanted you. Maybe I’ve wanted you all these years. I never felt that way about anybody but you. I’ve never loved a man. I never knew why before. Maybe it’s that.
The Thin Man Goes Home (1945)
John Cassavetes was totally fearless, almost unnaturally so. I never saw him depressed, I saw him angry, which they say is the other side of depression, but he was very sure and not particularly influenced by anything anybody said. Our pictures made people feel very uncomfortable much of the time. The characters were very emotionally exposed and people weren’t used to it. Everything was not spelled out. The old tradition was that you prepared the audience but with our films you had to just sit there and hold on to your seats. Some people like that and some don’t.
