Marguerite Courtot – photos and quotes

Marguerite Courtot

“Mr. Sanford said to mother, ‘Why don’t you put Marguerite in Motion Pictures? I think she’d do very nicely.’ But mother didn’t like the idea at first, and thought I’d better keep on going to school some more. But one day she decided that we might go over to the studio and see about it, anyway. So we went and had a talk with Mr Buel. He seemed to like me, and offered me an engagement. But mother said I’d better go to school another year. So I did, but she let me join the company in June, and I was 15 the next August. That was two years ago, and I love my work more every day.” — Marguerite Courtot

“I prefer photoplay, for the outdoor work, the being at home with mother and Juliette, my sister. And if I were on stage, perhaps I might have to go away and leave them for one whole season at a time. And then, work with Kalem is so pleasant at all times, and the people are lovely to work with.” — Marguerite Courtot

“My first lead part was in ‘The War Correspondent,’ and I was so embarrassed at the first love scene I had ever played. I wasn’t quite sixteen, and it was a little confusing.”Marguerite Courtot
