    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Hancock: They didn't want me to use The Method to play Buttons.

        The Method was an acting technique developed by Constantin Stanislavski in the early part of the twentieth century. It relied on the actor's own emotional state and was made popular in the 1950s by Lee Strasberg and The Actor's Studio. Famous students of Strasberg include Marlon Brando, James Dean and Jack Nicholson. Buttons is a character from the pantomime version of Cinderella.
