Certainly, I've loved musicals for a while, so I did some short films in college that had musical numbers and things like that, so I've kind of been obsessed with Fred and Ginger and Vincente Minnelli and Stanley Donen and Jaques Demy forever. ~ Damien Chazelle
Donen quotes by Damien Chazelle
When Fred Astaire danced, everything in this world was perfect. ~ Stanley Donen
Donen quotes by Stanley Donen
I started dancing when I saw Fred Astaire in 'Flying Down to Rio,' at approximately nine years old. Fred Astaire influenced me, more than anything, to be in 'show business.' ~ Stanley Donen
Donen quotes by Stanley Donen
Jean-Luc Godard said that cinema is the truth 24 frames a second. I think cinema is lies 24 frames a second. ~ Stanley Donen
Donen quotes by Stanley Donen
There was never any point in my life when I wasn't called Mr. Donen. I'm told my first words were, 'Call me Mr. Donen.' But I suspect that's apocryphal. My mother, Mrs. Donen, tended to exaggerate. ~ Stanley Donen
Donen quotes by Stanley Donen
I think of myself as a meat-and-potatoes kind of director. ~ Stanley Donen
Donen quotes by Stanley Donen
You see, it took me so long, it was such a struggle, to move myself out of musicals - because I had had a success, nobody wanted to allow me to direct a non-musical picture. It was so hard. And the only way I could get it going was to become a producer myself. ~ Stanley Donen
Donen quotes by Stanley Donen
What I got, unconsciously, from admiring Fred Astaire was that he didn't want what he was doing to look difficult. What was difficult, in my opinion, was making it look so genuine, so effortless. I equally have tried to remain unseen on the screen. ~ Stanley Donen
Donen quotes by Stanley Donen
What we all like in life, I think, is the challenge of making something ... that is not easy to do. ~ Stanley Donen
Donen quotes by Stanley Donen
There's no more film. Film is gone. We photograph digitally and electronically. We don't really use film the same way anymore - it's disappearing little by little. Things change. We have to change with them. There's no point in liking or not liking it. It is what it is. ~ Stanley Donen
Donen quotes by Stanley Donen
My childhood wasn't very happy. It's a long, grim story about being a Jew in a small southern town. ~ Stanley Donen
Donen quotes by Stanley Donen
What we think about Paris is a part of how we feel about it. Our idea of Paris is our idea and we don't know that that's not necessarily the way it really is. It feels so real. ~ Stanley Donen
Donen quotes by Stanley Donen
I got the boot once from Stanley Donen. The film was called The Little Prince. ~ Julie Harris
Donen quotes by Julie Harris
The vocal credits for Singin' in the Rain are interesting, and rather confusing. In the film, Debbie Reynolds has been hired to re-dub [Jean Hagen]'s dialogue and songs in the latter's first talking picture. We see the process being done in a shot of Reynolds, back to camera, matching her dialogue to Jean's and synchronizing it while watching the sequence on film. But the voice that is used to replace Jean's dialogue is not Reynolds', but Jean's own quite lovely natural voice. Director Stanley Donen explained, in Hugh Fordin's The World of Entertainment: "We used Jean Hagen dubbing Debbie dubbing Jean. Jean's voice is quite remarkable and it was supposed to be cultured speech, and Debbie had that terrible western noise." To further confuse matters, the voice we hear as Jean sings "Would You?," also supposedly supplied by Reynolds, is that of yet a third girl, unbilled studio singer Betty Noyes. ~ Ray Hagen
