Engagement to Director
Clarence Brown
"I remember the day Dorothy Sebastian arrived on the set wearing a ring in
which was set a diamond seemingly only slightly smaller than a goose egg.

"'He asked me to marry him,' Dorothy explained before any questions could be

"'Will you?' I asked.

"'Hell, no!' she laughed and then recounted how her beau had given it to her
the previous evening, pressing his case and adding rather gratuitously that
even if Dorothy rejected him she need not return the ring.

Gazing appreciatively at the glittering stone, she murmured warmly,

'You can bet your sweet ass I won't.'"
