“There was one absolutely gorgeous man in Hollywood I had admired from afar for several years. When I saw him in a nightclub or at a motion picture function, I would just stare. And when I was told that Twentieth Century-Fox wanted to borrow me for a film [Johnny Apollo] with this dream man, I nearly fainted. At last I was going to work with — and more than likely, be kissed by — Tyrone Power. Of course I tried to be very sophisticated, but privately, on the inside, I was very excited. As I began to know Ty, I decided the word “devil” certainly suited him. Not only was he more handsome off screen than on (and that took some doing), but he was one of the funniest men I ever met.“ – Dorothy Lamour
