I was very young when I saw 'Gone With the Wind,' but I fell in love with Clark Gable. And when I got to work with him, I couldn't believe it. I still had a crush on him. He was quite an old man by then; he must have seen that I was head over heels, even though I was married.
The big one I missed out on was 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.' MGM wanted me for it, and Warner Bros. wouldn't give me permission to do it.
After 'Baby Doll,' I did some Westerns. I would try to do something so far away from 'Baby Doll.'
Bad directors are the ones who want to tell you every move, and think they're a better actor than you.
