Trivia and Quotes

Quotes (1)

  • Martin Landau: (on Steven Hill, referring to his sole, problematic season as the star of Mission: Impossible) "I felt that he was digging his own grave. There was always something self-destructive, always a part of him that didn't want success, along with this very special talent. When he wanted to work he was exceptional. When he didn't want to work, for whatever reasons, he was destructive to himself. I must say that he was troublesome at times, but basically he wasn't. Most of the time he was professional, he learned his lines and was there."
