“Now, why should a vamp be dark, I ask you? You know men like light women better: they are gayer and more frothy. And who ever originated the theory that men love mystery? That’s all twaddle. Men simply run from anything that suggests mystery in women.”Jetta Goudal

“The word temperamental covers a multitude of sins. When a star objects to wearing a particular gown, or refuses to play a certain scene that she does not think is to her advantage, she is often termed temperamental. When, as a matter of fact, she is merely trying to protect her best interests, which are ultimately the best interest of the producer to whom she is under contract. When such action is accomplished by a deliberate holding up of production, such as walking off the set and arriving at the studio at any time that suits the star’s particular fancy – there is little excuse and I think the producers should be protected against such an unwarranted display of egoism.”Jetta Goudal, who was famously temperamental in her day.
