Personal Quote:

[In a 1990 interview] Look at some TV series which masquerade as glamor and see how much they have fallen into cheapness and tawdriness. So you ask me if I miss the business. I have to say it just isn't there any more. I've made all the comebacks I intend to, thanks very much! See more »


She sued Harry Cohn of Columbia Pictures because he supposedly ordered her to be photographed in her garters behind a screen, but it was just a publicity stunt cooked up by Barnes and Cohn. See more »
