[On losing the role of Frankie, which had been written for her by playwright Terrence McNally, to Michelle Pfeiffer in the movie version of "Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune"] "I thought it was wonderful to see a love story about people over forty, ordinary people who were trying to connect. We haven`t seen it before, and I don`t think we will see it with this movie Frankie and Johnny (1991)."


Jack made it very comfortable for me on the set. We`d met socially before but never worked together. You know, he`s very professional, very disciplined and he`s always prepared and knows his lines.


Playwright Terrence McNally originally wrote the role of Frankie in "Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune" for Bates. Johnny was played by Kenneth Welsh in the 1987 Off-Broadway production that starred Bates.
