Personal Quote:

[on Marlon Brando] He lives the life of the actor 24 hours a day. His style is the perfect marriage of intuition and intelligence. If he must learn to ride a horse for a movie, he will watch that horse like no one else has watched a horse and when he does the scene he will be both horse and rider. See more »

Trivia:

When she went to Hollywood and signed with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer., the studio changed her name to Stella Ardler. Her younger brother Luther, who originated the role of Joe Napoleon in "Golden Boy" on the Broadway stage, wanted to know why M.G.M. hadn't changed her name to Beverly Wilshire. See more »
