Personal Quote:

[on working on the set of The Birds (1963)] One of the ravens was so sweet that Ray [Ray Berwick] wouldn't teach him all the bad things to do, like peck people and dive-bomb. That raven became my buddy. He'd come up and sit in my dressing room on the set, play with my makeup, and throw it on the floor. I'd walk around on the set with him on my shoulders. See more »
