Martin Scorsese:
I come from an area, what they consider melodrama was pretty much happening. My father had a little TV set. They would show neorealist films on a Friday night for the Italian American community. Having the asthma, I was not allowed to play sports, so everything came through me, through the movies on television. I lived on Elizabeth Street between Prince and Houston, but I never went to the West Side, and so… I just went to the corner of Elizabeth and Houston and made a left and walked about six blocks and was in another universe.

And I was accepted into Washington Square College, which was part of NYU. And so I attended this orientation day and this was an eye-opening situation. And this gentleman got up and he spoke with such passion and such energy about cinema, almost like a zealous preacher in a way. I became part of the cult. His name was Haig Manoogian.

Young Scorsese: And, you know, I was sort of taken by him at that point because of that much energy, because that much love.

Martin Scorsese:
Haig really inspired us. He pushed us and he cajoled us and he beat us down and he built us back up again. He set a fire in our hearts.

Young Scorsese: If you were crazy enough to think you got to make a movie. He was the one who inspired you.

Martin Scorsese:
It’s one of the most precious gifts I ever received. Over the years, I always get excited by the young people coming up to me and kind of guide them as best I can because it keeps me alive creatively. The fact that you’re able to make someone else flower, in a sense.

What a joy and privilege it has been to work with you.
It’s really you, Marty – it’s you. Thank you.

Martin Scorsese: This is incredible satisfaction.
