"But I am not acting. I change myself. Simply it is that I am like that. I mean that I become so. When I am those women, it is a mood, many moods. All, all different. It is not just the one thing that you change to be so - the makeup - the hair dress - clothes -. Indeed no. You change all - your feelings, how you do things! Change utterly all of you." -- Jeanne Aubert (Bizarre Los Angeles)

"I write mush and melodrama. I love melodrama myself, and I have no secret disrespect for my audience when I regale them with it. I don't feel that I am at all condescending." -- Leah Baird (Bizarre Los Angeles)

"I always felt self-conscious as an actress because I'm tall. I see that it came over as haughtiness. I just don't have an actress' soul. I think mine has a dollar sign on it." -- Gail Patrick (Bizarre Los Angeles)

"When I'm working, I'd much rather be on the stage, but when I'm not actually working I think pictures are the best. The real thrill in acting for talkies is in the fact that they reach so many people - you know, I think I'd rather get a fan letter than a paycheck." -- June Clyde (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“May came to the studio – she did her work. Her amazing loveliness made her a star of the silent pictures. She couldn’t act. Nobody then expected her to act. Why should they? All she had to do was be photographed. So she was the mystery girl of Hollywood. The girl you never saw at […]

"I hope I am not making it in this business on my sexy looks. I really don't think it's that important. But evidently the masses are looking for sex in every picture. And if they want it, I think they should have it. Cinema is meant to entertain." -- Ingrid Pitt (Bizarre Los Angeles)
