Here's Vanity Fair's 2010 interview with the late, great American indie filmmaker George A. Romero ("Night of the Living Dead"), who died today at the age of 77.

"Filmmakers saw what was happening in video games and started thinking, 'Well, we’ve got to keep pace and make our zombies fast too.' I still don’t agree with it. If zombies are dead, how can they move fast? My guys don’t run. They never have and they never will. They’re just lumbering oafs that are easy to dispose of unless you make a mistake. Those are the rules, and I’ll stick with what I’ve got."

"All through Arizona, Foster would be called the King of the Wild Blue Sky. The stories of his derring-do, saving lives and stopping crime and thrilling school children are still legends to those who remember. His airborne exploits not only turned him into a kind of cowboy folk hero—that mythical gallant figure who negotiates the border between nature and civilization—but also helped create the modern idea of search and rescue and always-on, instant-access news."
