recalls about getting cast in North by Northwest (1959), "It was being filmed in Chicago, and they needed some actors for various scenes. My agent, Lee Armentrout, cast me and 664 others to fill those scenes. It wasn’t anything important. You can see me in the background in the airport segment. I didn’t have dialogue, I don’t get residuals, and I’ve never gotten fan mail for it."
says of Janis Paige, "She was probably the nicest woman I’ve worked with. I was cast as a replacement for this actress named Betsy von Furstenberg who was just difficult and awful to the people on set. On the first day of rehearsals, Janis said to me, “it’s so refreshing to work with somebody nice.”"
