Personal Quote:

I'm a little worried about Hollywood. People have forgotten there is anything else in the world out there but careers and motion pictures. As they sometimes put it, they've gotten so they are believing their own publicity. That's one thing that's not happening to me.


According to Laura Wagner in her full-length article on Gale, the actress/singer once was supposed to replace actress Rose Marie in the Broadway hit "Top Banana" but had to drop out due to illness. She later turned down a lead role with Alfred Drake in the Broadway musical "Kismet" because she did not want to commit to a year's contract. See more »
