"My general impression of Hollywood is that of a vary wealthy, over-grown country town. In fact, it reminds me very much of a town that has sprung up as the result of an oil boom.I know very few actors, but the ones with whom I did come in contact were normal, hard-working people, leading much saner lives then we are led to believe."
