Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on Cary Grant] Everyone thinks of him affectionately because he embodies what seems a happier time. We didn't want depth from him; we asked only that he be handsome and silky and make us laugh. See more »

Trivia:

It is often erroneously reported that Kael was fired from McCall's magazine in 1966 for panning The Sound of Music (1965) in her film review column for the magazine. In truth, she was let go for disagreements with the editorial staff, namely panning several highly acclaimed or successful films including the aforementioned "The Sound of Music.". See more »
