John Saxon's Quotes

  • [on Sandra Dee] I think I quickly perceived that Sandra was also a fish out of water in this respect. She had been a model in New York, I discovered. But I could sense that she was young. She clearly had a facility about acting; she had a great knack, a technique of acting. She knew timing. She knew changes. She knew where all the points were, but now I have a feeling that she actually didn't know where they were in a sense. She assumed. What I think is that both of us were making an approximation of what it was all about, this American boy and girl next door. In some respects, we shared something. It was an uncanny sense of what was desired of us more than what we really understood.
