Personal Quote:

[on the initial critical reception of Only Angels Have Wings (1939)] A certain critic said, "It's the only picture Hawks ever made that didn't have any truth in it". I wrote him a letter and said, "Every blooming thing in that movie was true. I knew the men that were in it and everything about it". But it was just where truth was stranger than fiction.
