"[Westerns] have been the mainstay of the industry ever since its beginning. And they have been
good to me. Westerns are a type of picture which everybody can see and enjoy. Westerns always
make money. And they always increase a star's fan following." — Randolph Scott

"Randy Scott is a complete gentleman, and so far, he's the only one I've met
in this business full of self-promoting sons-of-bitches."
Michael Curtiz, who directed Scott in "Virginia City" [1940]
