Personal Quotes (1)

[on her marriage to director William C. McGann] He thought being married didn't mean giving up other women. He bought me a mink coat that reached from the ceiling to the floor with my name stitched into every pelt. The only problem was, he started seeing the girl who sold him the fur and then ditched me and married her.
