- "Capellani, a genial, red-haired,
well-upholstered man, with the sort of beard worn by Impressionist
painters, was one of the shining light of the early cinema." https://books.google.it/books…
- "He was a large fellow, with red hair and a strong personality; very
intelligent, a real gourmet, and a film maker who mastered his work with
consummate skill.” http://www.cinetecadibologna.it/…/Albert%20Capellani,%20un%…
