Personal Quotes (3)

To be honest with you, I didn't like the direction the cinema was going.
I loved character actors, much more I think than the pretty boys. Michael Pate was one of those men . . . He was very nice and I enjoyed working with him.
[of Eric Fleming] He was a very sweet person and, of course, very involved with Rawhide (1959), and when you're doing a series like that, you have no other life.
