“I was afraid at first of the lights. I had heard so much about Klieg eyes, I thought I’d get them the first day – and I almost did. The novelty of the blue lights fascinated me, and I couldn’t draw my eyes away. After a few days, however, they became accustomed to the glare. And I was very self-conscious. I thought everybody on the set was there to judge my acting. I didn’t realize that they all had business to attend to the same as I. So I felt rather fidgety. Imagine being an unknown girl one day, and a motion-picture player under contract to First National the next, and you can appreciate the scared feeling that I had a first.”Joyce Compton
