Personal Quote:

[on Alice Faye] Alice had a quality, a feminine warmth that none of the other girls seemed to have at the time, not Betty Grable or any of them; and for that reason I think she was a star. There was a certain warmth to her, a simplicity that made her very valuable, I think. See more »

Trivia:

The only time Fox loaned him out between 1937-61 was to Paramount for But Not for Me (1959). He had been friends with Clark Gable for years, and the actor was so insistent on Lang as his director that the film was postponed until Lang, who had been hospitalized with peritonitis and ulcers, had recovered.
