Personal Quote:

[on Ann Blyth in The Helen Morgan Story (1957)] There are some actresses in this town who can roll in the gutter and it won't move you. They look at home there. But when you put a good girl like Ann in the gutter, it tears your heart out.


Marty said his godfather was Damon Runyon, and his personal speech made that claim believable. He could speak in non-stop profanities in such a way that not only weren't listeners offended, but were doubled up in laughter.
