Personal Quote:

[In a 1986 interview] One day I told Bela Lugosi that his daughter had come to call for him, and he said, 'She is my wife'. I wanted to sink through the floor for being so tactless! It might have hurt him, but I wouldn't have done that for the world because he was such a charming man, very soft and very congenial... Lugosi, Frank Lawton and I all had birthdays on that set in October. See more »
