“One thing has always annoyed me. That is for people to say that I was ‘made overnight,’ that I sprang from nowhere into the fame that ‘Stella Dallas’ brought me. Why, I was a star with Essanay when Gloria Swanson hadn’t yet been heard of. I starred in four stage plays on Broadway. For years […]

“I’ve seen a lot of people come and go in this business. Good people, too. When I first noticed that fans tired of personalities but never of pictures, I began to wonder why. Maybe this isn’t it, but movies were made to move. That was their first and inherent appeal. Then sound came along and […]

“I used to dress up in my best and go over to the Vitagraph studio in New York, where Norma was working, hoping somebody would see me and want me. I was little and skinny, and I guess I got in everybody’s way. But I used to dress up in all the different kind of rigs […]

“Maybe I would have been an outlaw, or something, if my father hadn’t uncoaled my arsenal and granted me a session in the garret, with an ancient razor-strop as the third principal in the scene. Did it ever occur to you what destinies may lie concealed in an old razor-strop intimately applied? Imperial Caesar, dead […]

  “Miss Farrar saw me one night in ‘Out of Darkness,’ which I did with Charlotte Walker. She said very nice things to me next day when I met her at the studio. I had been worshiping her a long time, of course, like all the girls at the studio, and I used to walk back […]

“I was born in Ireland, December 21, 1887, but came to America when eleven years old. I lived with my family, in Toledo, Ohio, until I went on the stage; then home was where I hung my hat. As to my stage experience, that’s easy – just drifted into it, playing in stock and Broadway […]

“Really, I never do anything exciting that is worth writing about. I guess I am a poor subject….My diary would be similar to this. I arise in the morning, eat breakfast hurriedly, rush down to the studio, work all day, come home, take a cold shower, eat dinner, go to a Motion Picture show, read […]
