“I prefer playing good comedy roles. However, I wouldn’t want to be a comedienne all the time. For one thing I don’t want to become typed. And another reason is that I have learned that we often have more fun making a serious picture than we do a comedy.”Lilyan Tashman

“No more vamping. No more home-wrecking. I’m going to be good. But – not too good! I hope I always play heroines with a sense of humor. I couldn’t bear to be a dull, stodgy woman, whose only talent is virtue.”Lilyan Tashman

Lilyan Tashman Beverly Hills mansion

Inside her Beverly Hills home at 718 Linden Drive. Tashman and her star husband, Edmund Lowe, threw many wild parties here…and if Hollywood legend is correct, these parties occasionally became orgies for closeted film players. Although Tashman nor Lowe ever came out as being gay, numerous stars have outed them in later years. Tashman, in particular, was said to have been quite a womanizer. She died in 1934 from cancer and, sadly, the house no longer exists.
