Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

(On Wild Bill (1995)) I was interested that Wild Bill was interested in the thing that finally killed him, his own legend. He was this kind of expansive American personality, a historical artifact... Babe was more interested in Jack [McCall] and the Oedipal issues, questions of identity and sexual identity. So what was at the heart of the play wasn't for me. But everything around the heart was.

Trivia:

Several of his films - Hard Times (1975), The Driver (1978), 48 Hrs. (1982), Extreme Prejudice (1987), Another 48 Hrs. (1990), Geronimo: An American Legend (1993) and Last Man Standing (1996) - had their running times gradually reduced. There are no plans to release Director's Cuts of any of them. See more »

Trademark:

Several of Hill's films have a bar called "Torchy's." Inseveral of his films, characters utter a variation on Cody's (Streets of Fire (1984)) and The Driver's exhortation to "Go home!" See more »

Star Sign:
