"Cleo Ridgely is the most difficult woman on the stage for the press agent to deal with. She has a different idea about her home life and her career on the stage and the consequence is that you never hear of Miss Ridgely's losing any diamonds or anything of that sort. She simply appears on the screen these days and that is all one knows about her. She is the great mystery of stardom." -- Gossip About Filmdom's Big Stars (1916) Bizarre Los Angeles
