Favorite Book: "Treasure Island" by Robert Louis Stevenson

"This book just caught my fancy. I musta been 7 or 8 years old when I picked it up. Somehow, reading "Treasure Island" might just have stimulated my movie career. Maybe it's all about adventure--being a prizefighter, then a tap dancer, then a movie producer, and then a writer. However, the usual types of book I normally read are autobiographies. People in the arts, successful movie stars. I enjoy learning about other people's adventures. Reading is learning."
