So therefore, they

have to deal with me.

The juice.

He got the juice man,

he got the power.

It was a very smart,

intelligent, sophisticated move

for him to form a

production company

called Solar, and exercised

his clout in the way he did.

And the first

person that he told,

his agents that he wanted to

reach out to be his partner

was my father.

I'm standing here with Bob

Relyea, the executive producer

of Solar Productions.

We had been through

"The Magnificent Seven."

We'd been through

"The Great Escape."

The company was a

very well organized,

real production company.

The relationship that Steve

and I had in our families

was extremely close.


actually throw a temper?

Can you?

Injustice bothers

me a lot sometimes,

and I get angry about

things, and so forth.

And I suppose I fly off

the handle sometimes.

Steve trusted Bob.

If there was a problem, he'd

just grab him by the shoulder,

and he'd take him

off to the side.

As much as you want this, Steve,

this passion doesn't mean shit.

And Steve got it.

It was a real coup to get him

to come to Cinema Center Films,

and to be involved

with his company.

That, in itself, was a

major accomplishment.

It wasn't just "I'm the

biggest star in the world."

It was I'm going to

decide what films I make.

I'm going to decide

who the directors are,

and I'm going to make

that racing picture

that I always wanted

to make, and it's

going to define my career.

I race motorcars,

because I enjoy it.

I like the competitive element.

I like beating the other guy.

I do enjoy the feeling of power.

It was his thing.

It was his passion.

And if you find your passion in

life, you know you got it made.

I remember the first time I

raced, I was very frightened.
