Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!
# Quote 1 [on her role in Airport 1975 (1974)] The best thing about the picture for me is the chance to appear with veteran performers like Gloria Swanson, Myrna Loy, Nancy Olson and Martha Scott. When you're surrounded by people like that, you're bound to look good. 2 [on her role in Airport 1975 (1974)] I love the part, and portraying a nun certainly gives one a different perspective on life. At times while in my habit, I felt quite different than usual. It was a special feeling. The kind one feels when they've done something good and clean within themselves.
