Personal Quote:

[on Jean Arthur] A difficult person out in the street, so they say -- I never knew her -- but everyone who went to the movies liked her, and that's unusual. Every movie star is disliked by some people -- Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, Marlene Dietrich certainly, even Greta Garbo, Ronald Colman -- but everyone liked Jean Arthur. See more »
