Personal Quote:

[on Jean Arthur] A difficult person out in the street, so they say--I never knew her--but everyone who went to the movies liked her, and that's unusual. Every movie star is disliked by some people--Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, Marlene Dietrich certainly, even Greta Garbo, Ronald Colman--but everyone liked Jean Arthur. See more »

Trivia:

Robert Altman's A Wedding (1978) was shot during the summer of 1977 principally on the Armour estate in Lake Bluff, IL. Every shooting day Cromwell and Ruth Nelson could be seen, in costume, in a small first-floor room set aside for them. Sometimes, they could be seen talking, but most often they each were absorbed reading books. See more »
