of doing Raiders was really good for me,

particular about the details.
I think that's why he's happy.

about it was that it was so extreme in style.

your attitude about the movies changes.
- Lawrence Kasdan

The kind of pace that you want to use in a Western -

and the way things develop sort of slowly -
it's almost the antithetical of what's currently going on in the movies,
you know.
- Lawrence Kasdan
