Personal Quote:

[on The Westerner (1940)] William Wyler directed. I had a wonderful scene in that - filmed on a donkey. I have a husband. I'm beating him, giving him the dickens, but Wyler never said cut. Finally, after a long, long time, he said cut! He had let me go on and on, hitting this poor man. See more »

Trivia:

She and her daughter Susan Kohner both starred in films that the Library of Congress selected for preservation in the National Film Registry in 2015: Tovar in Drácula (1931) and Kohner in Imitation of Life (1959). See more »
