“Gene’s interested in everything.  In every phase of picture making, of people, the arts, of politics, of - of everything.  And - and this quality can be irritating in a friend, as you probably know - he’s good at everything.  He’s even good at being lazy, sarcastic, and bad-tempered.  It’s those last which keep him out of the ranks of men you just admire and - to me - lifts him to being the sort of guy you can get mad at, and love.” - Isobel Lennart, 1946
