Personal Quote:

[About filming "The Uninvited"] I started out weighing 125 pounds, then I was rushed to New York for the opening. When I got back I weighed 106--all in two months. Everything was that way, rush... rush... rush... So many pictures one after another. I tried to be a nice guy and took on too many things and didn't take care of my health. See more »

Trivia:

In "Seven Men From Now", her character was attempting to extricate a covered wagon mired axle-deep in mud and the director said that Annie should look like she had just fallen in and not patted on artfully by makeup assistants. Whereupon, Gail motioned the crew aside and calmly took a nosedive face down into the slush. The director was delighted with her impromptu mud bath and the cameras rolled. See more »
