My last year's contract at Paramount ... I should have stayed there, you see. But it was one of those economy periods at the studios ... we were called in and asked would we stay on for the next year at the same salary ... and I was advised to say no. Which went against what I felt ... but I listened when I shouldn't have. I think that's been true of a lot of people.
