Quotes from the news wire:
Lauren Bacall was fabulous and glamorous and just a wonderful person, her husband [Humphrey Bogart] was dying when we were making this… But she was so hardworking. Claudette Colbert was a huge star and not so swell. She was tough, tough on me. But it’s good to see all that because as you start your career and you see all these people up close, you think, ‘I don’t want to be that.’ So you begin to smarten up.
