Cameron Mitchell's quotes

  • All the men in our family as far back as I cam remember were ministers. We had a corner on the market. It just figured that I would follow along.
  • [1958, when replacing an ill actor in the York Little Theater's production of "Inherit the Wind"] It's a great part, just right for my father, but not for me.
  • [upon being released from jail for not paying his alimony on time] This comes like a shot out of the blue. I don't know if she wants to slowly kill me, you know, privately and professionally, I just don't know; but I'm not bitter.
  • [In 1961] I have to live too. 40% for her [his ex-wife], 10% to an agent, 5% to a manager and on and on. It all comes to about 128%.
  • [In 1973, after he married a widow] I love her very much. She's a real Southern belle, so much so that she reminds me of Scarlett O'Hara. I'm very much in love with her.
  • What people forget is that a professional actor works hard at his job; even when a vehicle is terrible an actor can be good, though the public may not give him credit.
  • [In 1974] I have only $26 in two bank accounts despite receiving $200,000 in movie residuals during the last two years.
  • [In 1975] Still, I like to act, because I don't like myself very much, and acting is an escape.
  • [Of his globe-trotting lifestyle] I feel like Willy Loman, because I'm always packing my suitcases. I don't think anybody's traveled more than I have.
  • [About his taste in movies] Many years ago I liked every picture--and today, I don't like any!
  • [about why he doesn't bet on golf games, though he is an inveterate gambler] I like to bet the dogs, but I enjoy golf too much to spoil it with gambling.
  • [In 1968] I was almost mobbed when I went into the black compound. All those lousy movies I made in Europe were the only ones those poor people could afford to see. I was a big star to them.
  • I must admit that I rather enjoyed the laughter.
  • [about making westerns] I guess Adventures of Gallant Bess (1948) was my first western. The horse in that film was remarkable. She knew a couple hundred verbal commands.
  • I ride Prince, an 11-year-old bay. He's a smart horse--smart enough to occasionally get impatient with all the fooling around required when filming. He can steal a scene, too. I'll be doing dialogue and he'll come up and nibble my sleeve or rub his head.
  • [Of his role on The High Chaparral (1967)] Here in Hollywood it's another Bonanza (1959), but just alone out there in the desert, you have a feeling you're doing something that really happened to somebody 100 years ago.
  • [In 1969] They are not used to this sun. They are so keen to see us that they forget. They're not even dressed properly. Every weekend during the summer season there's an average of 25 people who collapse as they watch.
  • I don't like gore pictures, I won't see them. I make them, but I don't have to look at them.
  • [While playing Buck Cannon, he discussed the bad grammar his character Buck was using] These cowhands, most of them were illiterate and when you showed them a watch they weren't too sure whether it was the big hand or the little one that told the hour.
