Quotes About James Coburn

“He looked like the child of the liaison between Lt Pinkerton and Madame Butterfly.”
— Pauline Kael, legendary film critic, remarked on Coburn’s unusual characteristics.

“He was a guy who looked like he was casual, but he studied and he worked and he understood character.”

“The masculine male.”

“The personification of class, the hippest of the hip.”
— Andy Garcia.

“He was of that 50’s generation. He had that part hipster, part cool-cat aura about him. He was one of those kind of men who were formed by the Rat Pack kind of style.”
— Paul Schrader.

“Coburn is a modern rarity: an actor who projects lazy, humorous sexuality…he was the best thing in his movies, smiling privately, seeming to suggest that he was in contact with some profound source of amusement.”
