Colleen Moore

“Two years ago my motion picture career ended suddenly. Contrary to public opinion, my career ended because I had always planned that it would end when my contract was finished. But most unfortunately for my self-esteem, that contract came to its conclusion at a time when silent picture stars were making their talking picture debuts.

“I made two talking pictures, and both of them were terrible. They would have been terrible silent pictures too, because the stories were weak and meaningless. As a consequence of the two bad pictures, and by abrupt retirement from the screen, people said I had failed in talking pictures.”Colleen Moore
