I remember reading at some point that while she was on location for Garden of Evil, for some reason she scratched Cameron Mitchell's face. I wonder if he came on to her and she wanted to teach him a lesson.

Gloria..LOL.. could be I don't know... I do know, however, that she and Gary Cooper had good chemistry on screen. I wish we could have seen more of them together.

Re: Re: Movie Alert/Garden of Evil

Does sound like that sort of situation, Gloria, doesn't it ? A bit extreme a reaction for a standard argument or disagreement - he would have to have said / done something fairly unwelcome.

I heartily enjoy "Garden of Evil".Have not viewed it for quite some time, but still vividly recall that wonderfully orchestrated early scene with Cooper and Widmark playing cards in the taverna and I think Gary turns over the Queen of Diamonds.Richard says "The red queen" - and through the saloon doors comes Susan.
