“My work was all square at the corners and bumped into the artistic at every turn. I knew it. Thank the Lord I had enough sense to see it. I deserved to be taken in hand and talked to with some brevity and much point. I guess my not having seemed conceited over my good […]

“I think they are marvelous – the pictures. When one stops to think, they are the most wonderful thing in the world….Yes, the way that people, who never could, and probably never will be able to, leave one place, are able to know, just by the pictures, how beautiful our world is, is wonderful in […]

“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 […]

“I was born in London, England, but before I was old enough to become fully aware of the beauties of the largest city in the world, my family came to the United States. So, you see, I’m English by birth only. I’m Californian through and through by adoption, for my parents moved to San Francisco […]

“The fact is, I love acting and am awfully fond of writing, too. As to the directing, although I have done a good deal of it and often put on a photoplay while Mr. Ford is cutting and assembling a picture, I believe that I best like it in the way I do it – […]

“I was born in San Francisco, the 17th of April, 1888. My mother died when I was only two years old, and my father when I was ten, so I have been pretty much alone during my life. My grandmother brought me up, and I think the world of her, for she sure is some […]

“All my life, I have loved dancing. I was born in Denver, but spent the greater part of my childhood in Arizona. And night after night I have sung and danced with my shadow, with only the sagebrush for an audience and dear old moon for a spotlight, and with only an occasional yell from […]
