[on Mike Nichols
] He makes you feel kind of like a kite. He lets you go ahead and you do your thing. And then when you're finished he pulls you in by the string. But at least you've had the enjoyment of the wind.
While having dinner with Paul McCartney
, Dustin Hoffman told the story of the death of Pablo Picasso
and his famous last words, "Drink to me, drink to my health. You know I can't drink anymore." Paul had a guitar with him and immediately played an impromptu chord progression while singing the quote. Thus, "Picasso's Last Words", one of the highlights of the "Band On The Run" album, was made.

(1982), an autistic person in Rain Man
(1988) and a Captain Pirate in Hook
