"Anita Loos was supposed to write The Pirate; she did some work, and one Sunday morning, we all trooped over to Cole’s house to hear Anita read her screenplay […] And in Anita’s version, Gene was José or Gomez or someone - and he wasn’t even a pirate; he was a fisherman! So Anita was reading along, and she came to the part where Gomez and Manuela meet. And she said "When Gomez sees Manuela, he drops his nuts - uh, NETS!" Well, I thought I would die; I was in hysterics. But I looked around, and everyone else was terribly serious. They hadn’t heard a thing."
- Judy Garland
