"So, I’d like to thank my co-producer Ray Stark for waiting till I grew up; and Jule Styne and Bob Merril for giving me such a great score to sing, and Isobel Lennart for writing such a terrific character and all the Hollywood people who made our show into a movie. Herb Ross and my dear Harry Stradling, who I haven’t let go since. And my dear friends and director William Wyler. Wow, it’s like, somebody once said to me, asked me if I was happy, and I said "Are you kidding? I’d be miserable if I was happy!" I’d like to thank all the members of the Academy for making me really miserable, thank you." [x]

"She doesn’t actually sing a song at all; she acts it. She does things with her hands and face that are simply individual; that’s the only way to describe them. They haven’t been done before. She sings, and you’re really happy you’re there." - Roger Ebert, 1968.
