Lillian Rich

“Three meals a day, and four walls of a home would make a maniac out of me in no time. I have a wonderful husband – well, I have. Don’t smile – but even he couldn’t make me remain just a housekeeper. The war ended all that. Then men realized that women had their lives to live and that it was no reflection on a man for a woman to have a career of her own. But understand me. I’m not saying that I went into the motion picture business because I loved it and wanted a career. I began my rounds of casting offices simply because we needed the money. There, I’ve said the unpardonable thing, haven’t I? But I don’t care. It’s the truth, and why be ashamed of it?” — Lillian Rich

"The ambition of my life, just now, is to play dramatic, gripping types - girls who suffer. I know that I could do tragedy - I know it deep down inside." -- Lillian Rich (Bizarre Los Angeles)
