Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid, which was originally going to be called Suck the Bullet, because there is a refer... recurring thing where... what's her name? She's an English actress, and I can't remember her name. Very beautiful. What was her name? It doesn't matter. She sucks a bullet out of his... out of his shoulder, and Steve says, 'Where did you learn that?' She says, 'Oh, at summer camp.' And it was going to be called Suck the Bullet, and someone convinced them – I think stupidly – not to call it Suck the Bullet. It would have made much more money if it had been called Suck the Bullet. But anyway it was great fun to do, and, well, hardly, you know, the second coming of cinema or anything. Marvelous sort of, as I say, archaeology of one's own past. It was very nice.

Michael Chapman (1935-2020), an American cinematographer, had a huge influence on contemporary film-making, working on an impressive array of classic films including 'Taxi Driver', 'Raging Bull', 'The Lost Boys' and 'The Fugitive'.
