[on working with Orson Welles on Jane Eyre (1943)] You can not battle an elephant. Orson was such a big man in every way that no one could stand up to him. On the first day at 4 o’clock, he strode in followed by his agent, a dwarf, his valet and a whole entourage. Approaching us, he proclaimed, “All right, everybody turn to page eight.” And we did it, though he was not the director.
