Aug. 25, 1948: Lizabeth Scott tells veteran Hollywood columnist Bob Thomas of the Associated Press:
“I never did understand the character. Bogie was a baby. He was the only thing that made it possible to get through the picture.”
Also, Alan Ladd on “The Blue Dahlia,” Edmond O’Brien on “Powder Town,” Robert Ryan on “Trail Street,” James Stewart on “The Last Gangster” and Claire Trevor on “Bachelor’s Daughters.”
MacDonald Carey: “Salute for Three.”
William Holden: Followed on tour by “Young and Willing.”
Evelyn Keyes: What was wrong with “Before I Die?” “Me!” she says.
Alan Ladd: “ ‘Blue Dahlia’ was pretty awful. We made up the story as we went along. I never did figure it out.”
Edmond O’Brien: Would like to forget “Powder Town.”
Donna Reed: So embarrassed at a screening of “Mokey” that she walked out.
Robert Ryan: Learned not to play the hero’s pal in “Trail Street.”
James Stewart: Hated his fake mustache in “The Last Gangster.”
Claire Trevor: All of them, but especially “Bachelor’s Daughters.” “A good cast but terribly mixed up.”
John Wayne: Playing a cautious man in “Allegheny Uprising” was deadly on the screen.
