Ultimately what I'd like to do is not become pretentious. I'd like to keep from living in Beverly Hills and driving a Mercedes. I want to stay in my old stone castle in Malibu with my animals and my lady.

Grandfather [Judge Learned Hand] had a bad back, he'd lie on the floor to relieve the pain. I did my first Shakespeare sitting next to him on the floor, reading 'Antony and Cleopatra' and 'King Lear,' his favorites plays, and all the time grandfather'd be correcting my speech, my accent, then interrupting to see if I understood all the words. I must have been about 12 or 13. It was an experience that has stayed with me all these years.
