“During one shoot at a house, he was waiting for us to set up a backdrop, and he sat down at the piano and started playing and singing.  I immediately told the assistants to pull down the backdrop, which was blocking the light coming though the windows to where the piano was— afraid I would miss this moment.  No problem—Downey played a 45 minute concert that gave me plenty of time to make a series of great pictures, and he enthralled everyone in the room with his performance.”
