At the end of shooting The Women, Norma Shearer threw a lavish party on set with an orchestra and all. Among the guests were Ernst Lubitsch, who told Rosalind Russell mischievously as she went into a fox trot with George Cukor, ‘If you want your close ups to stay in the picture, better dance with Norma.’ Amused, Russell reported this to Norma, who gave one of her most brilliant smiles and held out her arms. Cheek to cheek, they whirled together past Lubitsch.

There is a name for you, ladies, but it isn’t used in high society… outside of a kennel.
