“The idea of playing tears, of merely pretending to be sad when one has gone through some of life’s real experiences, suddenly made me laugh that day that Bill Hart first told me I must cry in a scene. Everybody looked at me so oddly! I couldn’t cry, that was all. It took me the rest of the day to learn to weep for the camera. But once I had wept, the made-to-order grief came easily to me. Ever since then crying has been one of my specialties. Every picture I play in seems to require it. But don’t let any actor tell you the tears he sheds in playing a part are from his soul, even if they’re real tears. He’s spoofing you!” — Jane Novak
