Personal Quote:

There was a quality about Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer that was so special... it was just the most exciting studio in the world. They looked after their people so perfectly. And then to go to a place [Lippert Pictures - a B-movie company] where you don't know anybody and they don't know you and they don't give a rip, it was not a happy time. I got so ticked off, I got married! See more »

Following her death, she was interred at Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, California. See more »
