From: John Huston, An Open Book, Alfred A. Knopf: New York, NY (1980), page 36:
A rare combination was Sam--and is to this day. I've known Sam Jaffe for over fifty years now, and it is hard to describe him without making a panegyric of it. He is a devout vegetarian who doesn't smoke or drink, but never tries to win you over to his views... He went on, of course, to become one of the finest actors on the American stage, and he has worked with me on two films: The Asphalt Jungle and The Barbarian and the Geisha.
