Directing 'Lincoln' (2012)

Directing ‘Lincoln’ (2012)

“I love the idea of not being an independent filmmaker. I’ve liked working within the system. And I’ve admired a lot of older directors who were sort of ‘directors for hire.’ Like Victor Fleming was in a contract all those years to Metro and Selznick and Mayer… he made Captain Courageous. And you know, his most famous films: Wizard of Oz and Gone With the Wind.” -Steven Spielberg
