Lucille Ball, a "Goldwyn Girl" dancer in the 1933 musical Roman Scandals, also expressed her admiration for Manners and appreciation for his encouragement early in her own film career:"David wasn't in the one scene I did in Roman Scandals, but he watched every scene shot. He was tremendously enthusiastic, and he...invited me to supper...He was mobbed everywhere. All the time he kept telling me I had style and personality. He said if I persevered I'd get somewhere in Hollywood. Not once did he ever hint that he'd like to take me home to his boudoir...He was so utterly charming."
