Arthur Penn

"I don't storyboard. I guess it dates back to my days in live television, where there was no storyboarding and everything was shot right on the spot - on the air, as we say - at the moment we were transmitting. I prefer to be open to what the actors do, how they interact to the given situation. So many surprising things happen on the set, and I have the feeling that storyboarding might tend to close your mind to the accidental."

Arthur Penn directing Faye Dunaway on the set of, "Bonnie And Clyde" in 1967.
