Re: Stanislavsky and Ki

I heard that Sir Lawrence Olivier, observing Dustin Hoffman going through his Method exercises preparing for Marathon Man, bemusedly inquired, "Wouldn't it be easier to simply act?"

(In my youth I had a lot of fun training in The Method, but the wild, improvisational Commedia dell' Arte training was even more fun, and more like aikido to me.)
