Personal Quote:

I am not a Communist, have never been one, and believe that the Communists represent a vicious and destructive force and I am opposed to them.

Trivia:

Was the original choice for Errol Flynn's leading lady in the classic swashbuckler Captain Blood (1935) but the role ultimately went to young 18-year-old Olivia de Havilland, who impressed critics and audiences in the film A Midsummer Night's Dream (1935), which also co-starred Ms. Muir.
