Personal Quote:

[on rumors that her second husband Cary Grant and his roommate Randolph Scott were gay] Cary was crazy about women. Randolph Scott was no more gay than Cary was. And he was so handsome, he had women falling all over him. It's not like you read in the books. They lived in the same house and they got on well, but they didn't necessarily lead the same lives. They had different friends. See more »

Trivia:

Close friend and former classmate of Sue Carol at Kemper Hall in Wisconsin. See more »
