Personal Quote:

[on working with Joan Crawford on The Best of Everything (1959)] "I was fortunate that there was this tension with her. Our scenes were built with tension, and there it was, even before the camera rolled. It had to have been tough for her, to have these three young upstarts - and there she was, in a non-starring role."


She was the niece of photographer Dorothea Lange, famous for her Depression-era photographs, including the iconic "Migrant Mother". See more »
