“I don’t think plot as a plot means much today. I’d say that everybody has seen every plot twenty times. What they haven’t seen is characters and their relation to one another. I don’t worry much about plot anymore.”

“I guarantee you that two directors that are any good can take the same story change the name of the characters, change the name of the town and make an entirely different picture.” –Howard Hawks
