American Actor

Famous quotes containing the words american and/or actor:

    There is a constant in the average American imagination and taste, for which the past must be preserved and celebrated in full-scale authentic copy; a philosophy of immortality as duplication. It dominates the relation with the self, with the past, not infrequently with the present, always with History and, even, with the European tradition.
    Umberto Eco (b. 1932)

    An actor who knows his business ought to be able to make the London telephone directory sound enthralling.
