Personal Quote:

[on her famous leading men] I did four movies with Danny Kaye. Danny was hilarious, always cutting up and doing funny things. I worked with James Cagney in some films including White Heat (1949). Jimmy should have won an Oscar for that film, but for some reason they thought gangster movies shouldn't win Oscars. It's a shame because Jimmy gave a magnificent performance. I also worked with Bob Hope... See more »
