Sophie Turner - ‘Game Of Thrones’ The Exhibition New York Opening - 27.3.2013
[He was] absolutely dead on of pricking the bubble of pomposity in other people.
I remember there was a lawyer in Hollywood. He was very much a ladies man: a great mouthful of teeth, handsome and always very tanned, beautiful hair and everything. And he escorted all the between marriages stars everywhere. And Bogie and I went to this party… There was a dance and they put up a marquee tent and all that. And so Bogie and I just sat… and this fellow [the lawyer] was dancing with various ladies and obviously “chatting them up”, as they say in England. And, um, Bogie said… “Let’s just stare at him, the two of us”… And neither of us took our eyes off this guy. And he danced around the floor… and wherever he went… we just looked at him. And finally you could see the fellow fall apart. He left and went and sat quietly in the corner!
I realized he wasn’t Tom Joad or Clarence Darrow or young Abe Lincoln or the character in “The Ox-Bow Incident”, but that he had chosen to do them because he believed in those values. I think he hoped some of it would rub off - and it did.
