While I give to you and you give to me
True love, true love
So on and on it will always be
True love, true love

"I was the happiest and highest-paid straight woman in the business… I felt like a wonderful sandwich, a slice of white bread between two slices of ham." - Dorothy Lamour
"When our Hatfield-McCoy routine became a byword with the public, we did nothing to derail it. We developed and expanded it and pitched in merrily to think of insults to hurl at each other." - Bing Crosby
"Bing had a remarkable ability to double as a straight man or a comedian. He had a marvelous touch, with exquisite timing…the chemistry between us was perfect!" - Bob Hope

Ingrid Bergman asked director Leo McCarey to reshoot the final scene in The Bells of St. Mary’s, in order to play a prank on Bing Crosby:

"So that time I said, ‘Thank you, Father,oh, thank you with all my heart.’ And I threw my arms around Bing and kissed him right on the mouth. Bing nearly fell down with shock. Everybody stood up. ‘Cut! Stop the cameras! Cut, for heaven’s sake, cut!’ The priest acting as consultant came running up, actually running, in a great state: ‘Now this is going too far. Miss Bergman, we simply can’t allow that. A Catholic nun kissing a Catholic father…you can’t have such a thing in a movie…’

I was already grinning all over my face. Bing was just recovering from the assault, and I looked around and, of course, Leo had caught on and he was laughing his head off. The crew got the joke, too, and now even the priest realized it was all a big joke.”
