Quote of the Week

One day I was having coffee on the set, just drinking coffee out of a styrofoam cup. And I was wearing the black dress with the red embossed roses. It was the day of the auction scene when there were a lot of extras around. And he came up to me and he said, "Eva Marie, you should not drink your coffee that way in front of all those people. Get Miss Saint a china cup and a china saucer for her coffee!" And they did, and he was absolutely right. Why would I just be walking around with a styrofoam cup?

  1. ahhh silly old Alfred....Eva Marie Saint could drink coffee out of a cool whip dish for all i care, who would be looking at her coffee cup anyway? :)

  2. Seriously Artman, she could class up anything. However, I do like the idea of her sipping from the good china.

    Monty--I could practically hear Hitch making that command!
