Personal Quote:

Even now, I feel furious with myself because whenever there's a camera pointed towards me, my MGM training makes me smile. I don't like it. You can see it on all the people who came from that era because there was no question of them not smiling for the camera. Even Katharine Hepburn -- and God knows she was a dramatic actress -- if the camera is on her, she smiles. See more »


Her talent as a dancer had been already noticed in 1948 by Gene Kelly and his wife Betsy Blair in a Roland Petit's ballet on the theme of Oedipus, but they could not meet her at the end of the show, because she went home like a good girl. See more »
