Yvonne De Carlo Quotes:

Amantha Starr: [Wakes up in bed, stretches] Mr. Hamish Bond can't keep me here! I'm leaving the moment his back is turned.
Michele: [Offers a tray of food] The Master said those low-down men didn't bother to feed you. You must be very hungry.
Amantha Starr: [Frowns] I'll leave... as soon as I've had the chance to rest and recover my strength.
[Picke up a knife and fork and begins to eat]


Amantha Starr: You say you won't touch me. You give me your *word* as a gentleman. Well, what's to stop you from breakin' your word late one night and forcin' yourself on me while I sleep?
Hamish Bond: [grins] Only the word of a gentleman.
Amantha Starr: [late that night, unable to sleep] He said he wouldn't. But those are his footsteps, coming down the hall. Coming closer!
[listens tensely]
Amantha Starr: He didn't! Not tonight, anyway. Why not?
[Frowning at first, she thinks it over, then gradually falls asleep]


Lola Montez: There's enough uncertainty about marriage without sitting home wondering what tree your husband is hanging from that night.

Yvonne De Carlo Facts
Took the part of Lily on "The Munsters" (1964) to help pay husband Bob Morgan's medical bills. Morgan, an actor/stuntman, had suffered near-fatal injuries while filming How the West Was Won (1962). By her own admission, Ms. De Carlo never imagined, at the time, that Lily Munster would become her most famous role.

While starring in The Gal Who Took the West (1949), she was not only walking away in the movie, she was actually walking off with Jock Mahoney, who was her boyfriend at the time.

Was only three when her father and mother split up.
