Personal Quote:

I loved her and didn't want to see her kicked around. If MGM couldn't handle her, that was their problem. But she was so incredibly talented that I knew she could land on her feet if she had some help. So what if the movies didn't want her? She could always sing. I wasn't going to let her fail. -- referring to his part in resurrecting Garland's career via the concert circuit See more »
