Marilyn Miller – photos and quotes

Marilyn Miller 1929

“I will not show my legs when it is perfectly obvious that the only reason I am doing so is to attract attention. If I am being photographed in a ballet or dancing costume, that is different. People expect to see your legs then and it would be very funny if you attempted to cover them. But to pull my skirts way up when I am wearing an ordinary dress just to satisfy some photographer or a sex-crazed public is a thing I won’t even consider.”Marilyn Miller in 1929.

“When rich men come wooing, it’s with diamonds and sables and motor cars. They think of love in terms of riches, with their gold they would buy a girl’s heart. They never realize, the stupid things, that that’s not what we want.”Marilyn Miller
