Susan said: "Danny checked every detail. He wouldn't let me cheat with lipstick or even a curl. If he thought my hair wasn't mussed up enough, he put water on his hands and mashed it down.

|Director Daniel Mann said: "Susan's ability
was matched only by her courage. She reached for the ultimate, and had an enormous capacity for digging into herself emotionally while playing a role.

The director must be indulgent. But Susan neither required nor wanted indulgence while making the picture. She gave her utmost to the scenes, but when they were over, she stepped out with no bleeding."
