155540. I made a big mistake with him the first day I shot. We’re shooting the scene where I come back from the party, the dance, in the sleigh with Julie Christie and we turn the corner and go past the camera and the camera follows us just a little bit and we disappear. – Rod Steiger

155541. And I’m supposed to grab her and kiss her and she’s supposed to react. Well, what happened was, Julie was very nervous at that time, given this incredible part which she did beautifully. – Rod Steiger

155543. If he didn’t fall in love he would have never come back near the end of the film. Because, what man is going to dishonor himself so that he comes back in front of the man that took a woman away from him… and warns her to save her life? – Rod Steiger

155544. He saved the production a tremendous amount. Now they did the scene where Omar is on the horse and he’s in the deep snow, they went to Finland to do that. That scene they went to Finland for a week. I wasn’t around then. – Rod Steiger

155545. He got up and there were both of us in our underwear and this kid goes through the whole thing again, all the closets, the bathroom, everything else and then he left. – Rod Steiger

155546. Anyway, so what he did was, he spread sheets for 100 yards and underneath them he’d put things so there were bumps and different levels and on top he’d put little bushes and if you didn’t look to close, it looked like snow! – Rod Steiger

155547. And the reason I really appreciated this is because after the picture came out, I was invited by the American Psychiatric Association to give a lecture. I couldn’t believe it! – Rod Steiger

155548. Is this a proposal? I’m married now, you know. – Rod Steiger

155549. I had read the novel and I had heard David Lean was going to direct it – and it came as a surprise to me because American actors, if given the chance, can do style as well as anybody and speak as well as anybody. – Rod Steiger

155550. Only after awhile. After it came out and people began to engage in discussions about the social reflections of the film that I realized it had an importance I hadn’t thought of. – Rod Steiger

155551. Sometimes it’s great, sometimes it’s bad. I think the film could have been a lot better. – Rod Steiger

155552. That’s not a villain, that’s a man whose a victim of being in love with the wrong one. – Rod Steiger

155555. We come. We go. And in between we try to understand. – Rod Steiger

155556. I was very pleased you know, and I was afraid that I might stick out, but I didn’t. My happiest thing about that picture is that I proved that American actors can speak as well and also fit in with an ensemble like that. – Rod Steiger

155557. Now that was one thing, but from an actor’s point of view, this poor young man, crying from the moment I opened the door to the moment he left. Now if an actor did that they would say he’s over-acting. – Rod Steiger

155558. Well, one of the problems of working on a story with a character that sacred in the religions of the world or in a picture about that person, is that you have to forget about that and play it as real as you can because you can’t look at yourself and judge yourself. – Rod Steiger
