List of Jeffrey Hunter quotes.

When it comes to turning out movies, I'm for Hollywood.


I doubt if the public thought of me as Christ when they next saw me as Temple Houston on television.


I was notified on July 17 to be ready to start August 7 for an October air date. When we reached the screen we did not have a single segment ready. It was done so fast the writers never got a chance to know what it was all about.
