#Quote
1[Of Beverly Garland]: Bev was the 'great equalizer,' she was such a veteran actress; and she had a great sense of humor. She was a no-nonsense gal, she was serious about her work; and if there were any shenanigans on the set, she settled it right there. She was a marvelous lady, I missed her a great deal.
2[When asked if Beverly Garland was not a prime-time diva]: She wasn't at all, no trace of diva, there; at all; she was a hard worker ... she had a great humor, (I said). If anybody was in a bad mood; after a few minutes with her, they weren't; they were laughing; she was a terrific soul.
