Personal Quote:

[on Jean Arthur] A difficult person out in the street, so they say--I never knew her--but everyone who went to the movies liked her, and that's unusual. Every movie star is disliked by some people--Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, Marlene Dietrich certainly, even Greta Garbo, Ronald Colman--but everyone liked Jean Arthur. See more »
