That, plus his other body of work, which is substantial. He's also served as
an acting coach for many people I know. I have a great deal of respect for
him, especially given how unfairly he was blown out of work in the days of the
blacklist.

They won't get it right. They never do, in these remakes. The Haunting remake
was an utter disaster that failed because it had NO understanding of what made
the original film a success: the mystery of what you DON'T see.

They should just leave it alone.
