“Emotional debauches sound much less offensive than being temperamental. One frequently hears of this or that player being temperamental. That perhaps, is one of his or her great assets. Perhaps a nuisance at times but invaluable, nevertheless because it makes that person emotionally qualified for his profession. I believe that every actor has temperament to some degree.” — Lila Lee
“It was all there to have and to hold — and to lose.” — Lila Lee, reflecting on her life in the movies.
