“Social contacts? Yes, they count a lot. If you are seen you are discussed. If you are a recluse (unless you’re Garbo) you are very apt to be forgotten.”Anita Page

“I’ll never forget the centuries I lived through those few days waiting for that call. If I knew then as much as I do now about the motion picture game I would realize that I was lucky. But then I thought I was neglected. I hung on that telephone, hour upon hour, waiting for the call, until finally mother advised me to go out. I did and the message came from the studio.”Anita Page

“I wanted to get into the movies and I didn’t want to be married when I got into the movies. Maybe after I was in them for a long while or something. But I knew I was going to need everything I had in the movies if I was going to go in them and so–a lot of people don’t. They go in whether they can do it or not, but I wanted to give everything I had to the movies at the time.”Anita Page

 

"Between movies I signed fan mail. Or I modelled, or went on publicity tours. I received so much fan mail." -- Anita Page (Bizarre Los Angeles)

Anita Page at the beach. (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“You haver no idea how much better I feel since we moved away from town. I was perpetually tired and never wanted to do anything when we were living in town. Of course, when we had a house up in the mountains I was afraid to spend much time up there for fear I might be wanted at the studio. So we moved to the beach and you’re crazy if you think I’m not enjoying it. Even when I’m working I get up early enough to take a dip in the ocean before going to the studio. That peps me up for the entire day. Then when I come home at night I go in for a swim. And when I’m not working I spend practically all of my time down on the beach.”Anita Page
