"No one else could have given the part the sensitivity, the bruised quality that Ava imparted to it…She had to cut out drinking, the late nights and too much Frankie. She had disciplined herself rigorously for the part. She could always do this if she believed in the role, and she believed her part as Cynthia. Sometimes she would come in grumbling in the morning—she hated to get up early and drive to the studio. Once she was actually on the floor, she worked with a kind of desperate involvement and intensity that amazed me."
-Henry King, director of The Snows of Kilimanjaro (1952)
