    • Quote Gene Hackman:"I came to New York when I was 25,and I worked at Howard Johnson's in Times Square,where I did the door in this completely silly uniform. Before that,I had been a student at the Pasadena Playhouse,where I had been awarded the least likely to succeed prize,along with my pal Dustin Hoffman, which was a big reason we set off for New York together.Out of nowhere,this teacher I totally despised at the Pasadena Playhouse suddenly walked by HoJo's and came right up into my face and shouted,'See,Hackman,I told you that you would never amount to anything!'I felt 1 inch tall".
