Here's a twenty

Reading an entertaining post about classic Hollywood and Clark Gable, and in the middle of it, I come across this anecdote about actress Loretta Young:

Young was by all accounts an early version of Mandy Moore in Saved!, only minus the praise songs and feathered hair. Case in point: She carried around a “swear jar” on set and demanded that every time someone cursed on set, he/she pay a quarter “for the nuns.” (Spencer Tracy’s reply: “Here’s a twenty, sister. Go fuck yourself.”)
