“I suppose I am the same type as Gable, but why make a comparison? He’s Gable and I’m Chaney, and let the matter end there. I don’t care what sort of pictures they put me in, only I hope I’m to play virile, he-man types. I feel better in a pair of riding pants than I do in a full-dress suit.” — Creighton Chaney, aka Lon Chaney, Jr.
