Quotable Quotes:

"Made it, Ma! Top of the world!"

"[on working with Sam Peckinpah in Junior Bonner (1972)] I didn't care for Peckinpah at all. He was one of those little guys who tries to bully big guys and he almost got his ass whipped for trying to do it to me. Every time I was going to throttle Peckinpah, Steve McQueen would come over and calm me down like a brother would. (IMDB)"
