"Of course I'm making money now but you know how long the life of the average screen star is. I feel it would be a mistake to accustom myself to living up to every cent I make and then when I was through with the screen try to adjust myself to a less luxurious existence." -- Nancy Carroll (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“If a stage play flops, it’s the play, and you either fix it or lay it away in moth balls. In pictures, judgment is rendered upon the star, and when the truth of that finally sinks in, it is often too late to rail at the injustice of it. A picture depends on so many elements – dialogue, setting, direction – and all must function expertly to achieve success.” – Nancy Carroll (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“I’m not a good fighter and yet I know many people think I’m trying to be temperamental now and again and that I have a quarrelsome disposition. The truth is when something big upsets me and I feel it ought to be corrected I don’t know how to go about having it done. Then I suddenly (probably in the middle of a scene) discover a button is sewed on my dress none too perfectly and I hit the ceiling. ‘Ah,’ says everyone, ‘temperament –‘ and it isn’t. Now one knows what’s really back of the blow-up.”Nancy Carroll
