Personal Quote:

[to Garson Kanin and Ruth Gordon, who wrote Adam's Rib (1949), when they went to Gibbons' office to discuss the sets for that film] You know, this is an historic day. I've been at the studio [MGM] for 25 years and this is the first time writers have ever been in my office. See more »
