    Had the priviledge of working with Virginia Gregg on radio series, years, years ago.

    Shortly before, she and i were to start recording, noticed her sobbing in the hallway and i went over and asked her what was the matter and then she smiled and said “Oh nothing, I am just rehearsing my lines?.”

    Incredible talent of an actress and unforgetable.

    I enjoyed the interview. Virginia Gregg is very polished and mannerly. I
    admire women of her generation because I value more their values that I
    wished carried over to our generation. I have enjoyed seeing her in many
    other shows.
