Personal Quote:

[on Humphrey Bogart] He was an extremely hard-working actor. He'd always pretend that he wasn't, that he didn't give a damn, but that wasn't true. One day I said to him, "Bogey, you're just a great big phony." He put his finger to his lips and grinned at me. "Sure," he said, "but don't tell anyone." See more »
