[on Sophia Loren] She should have been sculpted in chocolate truffles so that the world could devour her.
"[MGM studio chief Louis B. Mayer] ordered Nelson Eddy to marry. Eddy agreed, but he didn`t want a virgin bride or some insatiable creature, and Mayer understood. Sometimes the least sexual marriages last the longest, so long as it`s mutual ... Mayer found him an older divorcée who`d been married to a movie director - she was wise to the ways of Tinseltown, she was not sexually demanding or needful, and she was well-pleased to live the comfortable life of a movie star`s wife."
Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1988.
The character of Beverly Carlton in the Moss Hart/George S. Kaufman play "The Man Who Came to Dinner" was based on Coward.
