“I don’t care! I want to be in that film!
I would even be a gate or part of the
scenery just to be in it!”
Ann Rutherford to Louis B. Mayer after he told her
he would not loan her out to David O. Selznick for
the “nothing” role of Carreen O’Hara, Scarlett’s
sister, in “Gone with the Wind” (1939)
“There was a quality about Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer that
was so special….it was just the most exciting studio
in the world. They looked after their people so perfectly.
And then to go to a place (20th Century Fox) where you
don’t know anybody and they don’t know you and they don’t
give a rip, it was not a happy time. I got so ticked off,
I got married!”
“I was Gene Autry’s first leading lady
and the only one he ever kissed.
After that he kissed his horses.”
Ann Rutherford from a 2010 interview.
