Personal Quote:

[After doing Arise, My Love (1940)] I called up my wife long distance and said, "Mal honey, when this picture comes out I'm finished. Sell everything we've got and we'll try to start a new life somewhere else." Then it came out and was an enormous hit which really boosted my career - that shows you how much I knew in those days.
