On Traveling: I like getting there, not the actual traveling itself. I’ve never been to Italy, but I love Italians. Paris I hear is a marvelous place, too- the city of lights. It must be beautiful; I hope someday to go there and all thee other exciting places.
I’ve traveled to England, Korea, Japan, and Mexico. I’ve been to Canada, too- when I made the film River of No Return, in 1953. We were on location in the Canadian Rockies and Banff. Did you know I almost drowned in the Bow River, when the icy torrent dragged me downstream? I also tore a ligament in my ankle when I tripped over a rock in the river. They had to put me in  a cast for ten days when my ankle swelled badly. Now I can laugh about it, but it wasn’t funny then. Imagine, this was my contact with nature- poor little me. A big-city girl, drenched, half drowned, and crippled, crushed by the wilderness. But if you remember the picture, I rode a log raft down the rapids. It sure was a beautiful country. Oh, yes, how can I ever forget Canada?
