“Constance Cummings in my opinion has refinement sticking out all over her, so much so that it has been somewhat of a detriment to her career. Most of the roles for which she has been cast so far have been those of slightly shady characters and she has too much culture to play them really well. You can tell by looking at her that she is an extremely refined girl whom you would expect to do just the right thing and to speak with flawless English.” – Darryl Zanuck, who chose Cummings as one of the nine Hollywood queens of 1933.
Scenes from Night After Night (1932). With George Raft.
