Swiped from Glenn Kenny's excellent blog, SOME CAME RUNNING, this great anecdote from Mitchum about Russell & Josef Von Sternberg:

Joe was really something. He told me, "We both know this is a piece of shit and we're saddled with Jane Russell. You and I know she has as much talent as this cigarette case." I replied, "Mr. von Sternberg, Miss Russell survives, so she must have something. Lots of ladies have big tits." —Robert Mitchum, 1973, interview with Dick Lochte for the Los Angeles Free Press.
