“How Judy and I got to know and love each other so much, I’ll never know. Because after [Girl Crazy], they immediately  tried to pit us against each other for film roles. When I got to Metro, they would say to me, ‘Well, if you don’t behave yourself, you know we’ve got Judy. We’ll put her in the picture; she can do anything.’ And they’d say to Judy, ‘You know, if you don’t behave yourself, we’ve got this new kid on the block who can just step right into your shoes.’ Which was all silly, really. Arthur Freed knew if there was no Judy, there would be no picture. If they could have put Judy in every single picture they made, they would have! Because - I promise you - she had more talent in one little finger than all of us put together. When I think of a star, Judy immediately comes to my mind. Although she’s never left it. She could tell a story that would last an hour and you’d never get bored… you just loved to watch her face when she talked. And she would do these imitations of people that were just right on. And sometimes she wasn’t very kind - which was even funnier!” — June Allyson.
