“The star of a picture takes all the responsibility for its success or its failure. Pictures are good or bad according to the reaction the exhibitor gets in his box office. And if a picture in which Brent is starred doesn’t make money, the exhibitor writes that ‘Brent doesn’t make us any money.’ If I am fortunate in getting good stories, and have good supporting casts in all of them, being a star will be fine. But one poor story and one weak supporting cast, and Brent will find herself out in the street.” – Evelyn Brent, in December of 1929. Bizarre Los Angeles
