The View from the Street 12

(Helen Hayes on the demands of her profession.)

“My leading man was Gary Cooper, and like half the women in the world, I was, in the words of the Noel Coward song, ‘Mad About the boy.’ It was all very innocent, but Gary and I had this passionate love scene, and it didn’t take Stanislavsky or the Liebestod to get into the mood: I played it to the hilt.” … My Life in Three Acts ... by Helen Hayes.
