James Cagney’s Tip to Michael Caine

Excerpt from Michael Caine’s awesome book Michael Caine – Acting in Film: An Actor’s Take on Movie Making.

One important piece of technical advice about movement: don’t rush it. Give the camera operator a chance. James Cagney gvae me this tip about running: “When the director tells you to run from over there right toward the camera and past it, run like hell when you’re far away, and as you get near the camera, slow down. Otherwise you’ll go by so fast, they won’t know who the hell went by.”
