(In a 1937 interview) Harry Cohn was one of the most colorful characters you can imagine... an almost impossible person, saying the wrong things always but sending you away with the 'right' feeling. A personality like a bomb, he's like a sandpaper across your feelings. I doubt if Harry Cohn's a gentleman, but you'd love him. He sits behind his huge desk in his short sleeves, bawling into a half dozen phones, doing work enough for three men, but anyone can get in to see him - and no one ever leaves his office without a feeling of gain.
