“What I remember most is, by the time I got on that picture, director George Stevens and James Dean were at each other,” Nash recalled in an interview for the Western Clippings website. “Dean did his usual mumbling and Stevens kept saying, ‘This script cost a lot of money. I want to hear those words!’ George didn’t like James’ style of acting!”
