In 1984, while discussing getting roles in Alfred’s films, the actress told the Washington Post, “I wish he had believed in nepotism. I’d have worked a lot more.

But he never had anyone in his pictures unless he believed they were right for the part,” ha continuato in quel momento. “He never fit a story to a star or to an actor. Often I tried to hint to his assistant, but I never got very far. She’d bring my name up, he’d say, ‘She isn’t right for it,’ and that would be the end of that.
