Walter’s complete indifference to worry bothered me a little when we first began working together. I remember how just before one very emotionally tense scene, Walter strolled me nonchalantly away from the set and related a hilarious tale about a bear in a barber shop. I couldn’t help laughing and the tension was broken. Although to be even momentarily distracted from important “drahmah” seemed to me then supreme lese majesty. Having then only recently arrived in America, those were my days of more dignified mien. A relationship Walter promptly exploded between the two of us by addressing me as “The Duchess,” as he still does, alternating occasionally with, “Hey, Red!”

On numerous occasions, it has been my pleasure to be bound by the bonds of movie matrimony to a tall, tweedy Canadian gentleman, attached to a pipe. - Greer Garson
