It's fantastic because I've been living thousands of lives, not only my life.
But to do this kind of work, you have to be very strong, otherwise you lose your personality, your identity.
But we did the Pink Panther not in Hollywood, in Italy.
Yes, they wanted me to sign a contract of exclusivity, and I refused.
And also, Sergio Leone was considered in Italy a director of category B, not a big director.
And I had a big opportunity with Richard Brooks, The Professionals, which is really a magnificent movie.
But Sergio Leone invented totally the way of, you know, the details, the eyes, the hands - fantastic.
Many other movies, but for me The Professionals is the best I did in Hollywood.
