I think that Richard Nixon is a great man and that he is very dedicated to what he does. I had the pleasure of meeting him when I attended the Republican National Convention in Miami. You can really tell that he is willing to go out of his way to help the American people.

M.G.M. never really gave me a break. They loaned me out for leading roles but cast me in programme pictures.
