The McDonnell Rule

Take a look in the gallery and media archive for screencaptures and clips of Grand Canyon, a movie from 1991 in which Mary played Claire.

God, I’ve been so lucky. I can’t tell you what you’re doing for me today! I had no idea I would be revisiting my life as an actress. This is amazing. I’m really impressed with my career! [Laughs.] Larry Kasdan. What a sensitive, kind, intelligent, funny storyteller. I think he understands Los Angeles almost better than anyone I’ve ever worked with. He gave forth this story about life here and so interestingly predicted what was about to happen in Los Angeles over the next couple of years, put it into one story, and then gave us this extraordinary crew to work with and an amazing cast. There was just a collective feeling that this was an opportunity to tell a difficult story in a way that was lighthearted, and to touch on some very dangerous things that probably would happen that we probably would survive. It was fascinating.
