“Hollywood is awfully naive about things like Follies girls, for instance, don’t you think?
“They don’t realize that there are hundreds of show-girls who ride in subways, and try to save out of their salaries, and live with their families and don’t get invited to millionaire’s parties. In comparison there are only a few of the other kind, with an apartment on Park Avenue and a limousine at the door.
“The very word ‘Follies Girl’ seem to bring up something sophisticated and smart to the Hollywood mind. Even if you are only there for a season, you are tagged forever after.” – Claudia Dell
