‘I call Jimmy Stewart and Robert Mitchum my sons, although I don’t see much of them. They have their lives and I have mine. I don’t have any children, but I feel that they are like my sons.’
- Judith Anderson interviewed c.1991
Interestingly, both actors had played Judith’s son: Stewart on Broadway in controversial 1934 play Divided By Three (pictures of which are thin on the ground, unfortunately) and Mitchum in 1947′s great film noir Western, Pursued.
