Donald Pleasence QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
All the real work is done in the rehearsal period.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
As far as being idolized by teens, I don't know. It must be some sort of father fixation. Or maybe they think I'm just pretty.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
At the end of the first Halloween, when I shot 6 bullets into Michael Myers, John Carpenter said, Let's get a shot of you looking out of the window and seeing no one lying there.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
At this point in my career, it doesn't bother me much that I'm probably hopelessly typecast. I like to work, and horror films definitely keep me working.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
Carpenter is my favorite director, because we get on very well and we both have an overdeveloped sense of humor.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
Continental directors, as opposed to British and American, tend to be somewhat high-handed in their approach.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
Don't ask me about the stranger. I won't tell you a thing other than he wears a hat, a long coat and boots with silver tips.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I am not one of those actors who believes he has to live the part he is playing. I can turn it on and off.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I believe Halloween 4, despite the fact that I wasn't too thrilled with the makeup, was a return to the kind of thing that made the original so good.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I believe you can frighten people without showing their heads caved-in.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I can't say enough about how terrific Beau Starr has been on these last two films.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I do not use any set methods, not even The Method. The character after all is in the lines.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I do think the story in Halloween 5 is a bit stupid, and there's a lot more blood. They're obviously going to take the Halloween series in a different direction.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I don't know what I'm going to be doing after this film, but I'll be doing something before long. I just like to work, it's as simple as that.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I don't really know how many films I've done, and I don't look at this as a race that I necessarily want to win. Nor is it a race that I want to stop running.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I had a feeling George Lucas would go on to do some wonderful things. Technically he knew everything about the business at a very young age.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I have no problem taking their money and dancing their dance. I'm doing that on this film, right now. They just haven't realized it yet.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I loved working with Jamie Lee Curtis, and I felt she was a wonderful actress even that early in her career.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I rather liked Death Line. All those zombies on the tube train thing was good fun, and it allowed me more of a comic turn than I am usually afforded.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I think people have a tendency to read into more than there is.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I was offered a choice of a flat salary up front or a percentage of the film's future earnings. I took the up front money. Nobody could have figured what Halloween would ultimately become.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I'm an actor, and it just happens that most of what I'm doing today is horror films. So what am I supposed to do-not work?
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I'm hardly physically right for the hero parts, now am I?
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I'm the sort of actor who likes to talk about what we're going to do.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I've taken some notes as I've gone through the years of playing this character. On the surface, Loomis appears to have been the classic nut case.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
I've tended to play Loomis with a light touch-not totally comedic, but in a manner that fit with these films' attention to suspense and tension.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
It's gotten to the point where it's big news when I don't do a horror film.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
It's hard to play a continuing character like Loomis for nearly 11 years and simply wash your hands of him. It seems a pity.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
John and I had a few meetings about what direction the sequel should take. I made some real insane suggestions. True to what you'd expect, he ignored them all and just picked up Halloween II where the original left off.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
John Carpenter created the idea of Halloween, so his vision remains the most focused and intelligently directed of the series. The directors that have followed have kept the original intent of the concept.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
John Carpenter liked my work, and he needed some kind of name for the picture. The script was good, and I immediately liked John, so I did it.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
Loomis has always felt himself responsible for the fact that he did not stop Michael when he first murdered his sister, and so he's got that guilt to live with.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
Rather than setting it somewhere you'd expect horrible things to happen, such as New Orleans with its association withdemons, a smaller, quiet town is much more effective.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
Steve McQueen was a bit difficult.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
The first Halloween was very well made. The second one was also well made, though I didn't like it as well as the first one. The third one had nothing to do with the series at all and perhaps shouldn't have been made at all.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
The idea of dying and coming back is what makes the Halloween films work.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
The play is on top of me all the time, and I am constantly thinking about it. Even when I leave the theatre, I'll mumble the lines to myself or think about the way the character walks or holds himself.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
The process of building a part doesn't really stop.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
The process of creation goes on all the time. When I get through, I feel I know what the character will do in every situation. But the building up of the part is not mechanical or deliberate. It grows out of the text.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
Ultimately, Halloween II was a little too violent for my tastes. It didn't have the intelligent quality and bloodless suspense of the original.
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
What can I tell you about things like Circus of Horrors except that I get killed by the bear?
Quotation of Donald Pleasence
Whatever happens in these films always appears to be absolute and final. It's been that way with Michael, and it's been that way with Loomis. They've died and they've been dead-until they were brought back.
