"He was astonishingly prolific and artistically rich" - from the book; 'WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO ORSON WELLES' from author Joseph Mcbride
"Never give the studios control of your films. Make the movie you want and be free of them" - quote from ORSON WELLES
"Anytime I have to work some job, I'm reminded why,...and it's because I would rather have artistic and financial control over my creative output. Simple as that. I work and treat a job as working capital. I don't work some job as a status symbol. That's ludicrous. I crave, I need, I insist on following my artistic vision and if that means to put up with some regular job than so be it!"- JAMES D. WATKINS

"Having witnessed his work firsthand, I suspect James D. Watkins may be a genius of some shape or magnitude. Just try to forget that that endorsement comes from a guy who voted for Mondale and DuKakis, gave 'Death to Smoochy' four stars and genuinely preferred New Coke. An old-school impresario in the mold of Ziegfeld or Welles-albeit one spared the crippling handicaps of funding or common sense......"
"When I am gone, they will love me"- quote from Orson Welles right before he died and who also directed what many consider the greatest film ever 'CITIZEN KANE'.
