Personal Quote:

[on J. Carrol Naish] I looked to him. I was young and he protected me from an aggressive director, Richard Rosson [Hideaway (1937)], who was after me.

Trivia:

In July 2006, she was a guest at the Western Film Fair in Charlotte, North Carolina along with Russ Tamblyn, Coleen Gray, Ben Murphy, Roger Davis, Mark Goddard, Ronnie Schell, Steve Kanaly, Tom Reese and Cheryl Rogers. See more »
