"People are looking for illusions, they don't want the world's realities. And, I asked, where do I find this world of illusion? Where are their tastes formulated? Do they study it in school? Do they go to museums? Do they travel to Europe? Only one place -- the movies. They go to the movies. The hell with everything else."
Morris Lapidus (who in the photo at left sure looks like Elia Kazan, see below, and in which photo Lapidus holds a postcard of his most famous architectural design, for Miami Beach's Fontainebleau Hotel)
