John Milius, Film Critic

Who is the most quotable filmmaker of them all? Quentin Tarantino would be the modern-day favourite; Kevin Smith, Nora Ephron and Billy Wilder have their fans. But a strong argument could also be made for John Milius, the legendary writer-producer-director whose credits include Apocalypse Now, Jeremiah Johnson, The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean, The Wind and the Lion, Big Wednesday, Conan the Barbarian and Red Dawn – as well as uncredited work on the scripts for Dirty Harry, Jaws and The Hunt for Red October, among others.
