[on typecasting] “It was frustrating. I had plenty of offers, but not for the lighter roles, the comedy roles I had always felt would be the main strength of my career. Even today I don’t get as many of those offers as I’d like.”
Anthony Perkins, 1959.

”Anthony and Audrey developed a really good relationship, and he brought out a facet of her personality I had never seen before. At times, they acted like two young kids. I would say Tony seemed like a brother to Audrey and watched over her. If he saw her sitting by herself on the set, maybe looking a little sad, he would jump in, shaking her chair until he had her laughing, or getting her a cup of tea, telling her a joke - anything that would perk up her spirits.”- Bob Willoughby
