Personal Quote:

It was touching to see how Ira Gershwin, while singing, would become so overwhelmed with admiration for his brother [George Gershwin] that he would look from him to me with half-open eyes and pantomime with a soft gesture of his hand, as if saying,"He did it. Isn't it wonderful? Isn't HE wonderful?". See more »
