“The laborer puts all his energy into his work, doesn’t he? So does the motion picture player. The distinction between them is that, the laborer drives his own car to work; the star employs a chauffeur. The laborer dines out of his lunch pail; the star dines in her dressing room or the studio cafe. The laborer works eight hours a day, then goes home around five in the afternoon; the star works from ten to eighteen hours daily…then goes home to memorize lines for the next day’s job.”Bebe Daniels

While this comparison applied to working motion picture players, most people don’t realize that production crews worked six day weeks back then.
