Quotes

  • In those days, you would walk into the dining room at Paramount and there were all of these big portraits of all these big movie stars on the wall. Around the corner was Cecil B. DeMille. The dining room was filled with big movie stars. It’s all gone now.
  • People have different opinions about this, but I’ll use it to my advantage. If I call the plumber and he says, “I can’t come right away”, I’ll say, “Did you ever watch Happy Days (1974)? I’m Mrs. C, you know”. And not only does he get over here right away, but he brings his entire family.
