Frank Capra Quotes
I think of the medium as a people-to-people medium, not cameraman-to-people, not direction-to-people, not writers-to-people, but people-to-peopleYou can only involve an audience with people. You can’t involve them with gimmicks, with sunsets, with hand-held cameras, zoom shots, or anything else. They couldn’t care less about those things.

He invents God, prayers, incantations to something above him. Why? This is not brought out – this is not weapon culture.
