"I believe Randolph Scott could have gone further as a performer. But he did not have the ambition to step up, to be better in anything except golf. Golf was all that counted. He was a handsome man; took showers twice a day, I believe. He was a man whose shoes shined. But he had a tremendous inferiority complex about his acting ability, and that made him stiff... he was Randy Scott. Which had advantages, but no surprises." André De Toth
