"We went to see Duel of Angels, a play with Vivien Leigh. We went backstage and met Vivien. Lucy [Ball] and I went to the Brown Derby across the street. She was very depressed and just sat there and fiddled with her food. She said, ‘What I do is so meaningless, so unimportant. She is such a great actress. Look what she can do!’ To cheer her up, I said, “But, Lucy, think of the millions of people you’ve affected. Could Vivien ever, ever affect that many millions of people like you do?” She turned to me and said, ‘Have you ever heard of that little movie called Gone with the Wind?’” -Bob Osborne
