Ron Howard: on Filmmaking

Ron Howard was a child actor (Dennis the Menace, The Andy Griffith Show, Happy Days), who has appeared in almost eighty TV shows and movies. Then his hair fell out, so he made the jump to feature film directing (Grand Theft Auto, Cocoon, Willow, Apollo 13, Cinderella Man, The Da Vinci Code, Frost/Nixon, Rush, etc.).

He was interviewed by BAFTA recently, where he talked about his experiences as a filmmaker.
You know directors, some of them — some of us are sweethearts, some of us are jerks, some of us are talkative, some are very quiet. None of that really matters very much — although, you know, I always think it’s nice to be decent to people, but that’s me. It’s not imperative. The big thing is taste — taste and judgement. That’s what it’s all about.

I really enjoyed Willow and can't understand why it isn't more of a favorite.
