Overheard in the documentary Two in the Wave (2010)
"In Scarface, when Paul Muni takes his machine gun, we feel that he might easily have done something else. I like to convey this. Convey it strongly enough to give the feeling that 5 minutes before, Seberg wouldn't have betrayed Belmondo. She wouldn't have turned him in, or if she'd bumped into somebody, other things would've happened and we'd have a different film. Like, if somebody gets run over in the street. Had he crossed 5 minutes later, he'd be okay."
