1 [on Joan Crawford] Now, there's a formidable lady. Her knowledge of the business of the lighting is something out of this world.
2 [Talking about Errol Flynn in 1970] He was a better actor than his publicity gave him credit for. I shared his house, his fights, his liquor and his girls. He was a real man with terrific looks. What happened to him, of course, was that he took to the dope - in fact, he was registered over here in England as an addict - and that destroyed him. God, if he were alive today do you realize that he would be sixty-one - and probably still be a star.
