Ann Baumgartner Carl on: Jackie Cochran
Ann Baumgartner Carl Q: What was your impression of Jackie?

Well, we knew her background and as we came into her New York apartment we saw all her trophies and we certainly were impressed by her past and also by her connection, what she was planning to do. So I had no preconceived idea. I thought she was great.

Q: What did she say to you?

It was a very short interview. She asked basic things and then said that you know, this is going to be risky business and you will have no special consideration. So . . . she put it on the table. I don't think it stopped anybody.
