Notes

Hagerty on Bob Fosse: "He was the first man I loved, and the man I loved most. I met him when I was 22, or was it 23? What can you say about somebody that you loved that much? Every day, every second, was full. I think it's pretty chicken how people regarded him in those stupid biographies. He had such a heart." -- Julie Hagerty in BUZZ, 1992.
