You can have a broken heart, a heart of gold, a heart of stone, a beating heart, a bleeding heart, a heart of steel, the heart of a lion or a wild heart, but at the end of the day, after the fight, after the pain, our hearts still beat at the same rate.

I just walked onto the set of Ragtime which was being filmed on East 11th Street in 1981. It was a chaotic scene as director Milos Foreman tried to maintain order as costumes extras and neighborhood locals milled about on a rather typical block pf shabby tenements that had been converted into a turn of the century lower east side full of recent immigrants. Standing radiantly apart from it all was a beautiful young woman looking a bit nervous. It was the unknown actress Elizabeth McGovern and I was transfixed. She looked as if a time machine had just delivered her to this modern day film set and it was we who were out of place here, and she who belonged there. I took this shot and it has always been one of my favorites.
