Interview with Ted Turner in Modern Maturity, Sept/Oct 2000:
"You own a complete library of films. Which movies would you rank as the best?
Ted Turner: "I'd say my all-time favorites would be GONE WITH THE WIND, GANDHI, LAWRENCE OF ARABIA, and EMPIRE OF THE SUN."
"Those are all big, dramatic, sweeping stories. In a way, your life has a sort of a David Lean scale to it, doesn't it?
Ted Turner: "Sure. I would have liked to have been a hero in some earlier time, a knight in shining armor. To have ridden with King Arthur or charged at Gettysburg. I would have liked that. What's wrong with having dreams of glory?"
