Personal Quote:

Most young blondes in those days [1950s] were not taken too seriously. I had wanted to work on a project [directing] all my own from beginning to end for many years. I had managers who said, "Look, you're an actress. You're not supposed to do that other business". And now I look at all the women today who are doing it, and no one's batting an eyelash.

Trivia:

Diagnosed with lung cancer in 2007, despite having quit smoking nearly twenty years earlier. She immediately underwent chemotherapy and had surgery to remove the upper lobe of her right lung. See more »
