"None of us knew anything in those days. Mr. Griffith always called us young ladies and she saw to it that we never smoked or drank or played cards. We didn't anyway." -- Miriam Cooper (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“None of us knew anything in those days. Mr. Griffith always called us young ladies and she saw to it that we never smoked or drank or played cards. We didn’t anyway. We didn’t have beaus, except Dorothy Gish, who was going with Bobby Harron; we’d come to the set looking like tramps, our shoes untied, hair uncombed, to get fixed up. Nobody looked at us, a bunch of girls hardly in their teens. I was the only one living alone, so Griffith had me live with Mary Alden.”Miriam Cooper
