“There’s a well thought-out reason for Ned Sparks. I met him first years ago in the character of a night clerk at a small mid-western hotel, one of the grouchiest, grumpiest, most inhospitable persons that I have ever seen, inside or outside a hotel. He stared at me belligerently when I went up to the […]

“This much I do know. I’m to do ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ I’m looking forward to this because I feel it can be a highly amusing and successful picture. I’m not sure whether I will play the Scarecrow or the Tin Woodman. Both are swell parts and if they keep it in a light vein, […]

“I suppose I am the same type as Gable, but why make a comparison? He’s Gable and I’m Chaney, and let the matter end there. I don’t care what sort of pictures they put me in, only I hope I’m to play virile, he-man types. I feel better in a pair of riding pants than […]

“The main trouble with the picture industry today is this business of imitating. It’s done for money. Art is a slight consideration with most producers. Yet a picture that lacks art doesn’t make money. The fellows who are getting the most out of the business are the ones who are doing something new.” — Harry […]

“He was a very small man and he used to touch me and I used to say, ‘Don’t touch me. You are diseased.’ I wasn’t being cruel about his size, it was just that he was a sex maniac. He had a lust for ladies, unnatural.” — Roger Moore Source: Stefan Kyriazis (2016) Photo: The […]

“Anyone with a modicum of intelligence and the right kind of physique ought to make a film actor, if they are lucky enough to be told exactly what to do, and I cannot see that the actor for the screen deserves any more credit than a schoolboy who is good at dictation should have for […]

“I’d probably get an inferiority complex and wither away if it weren’t that the girl friend business is so steady and profitable. Sometimes I like to imagine myself in some leading man’s arms. Then again, that might not be so good, either. I might get typed as a kissable, romantic actress and they are now […]

“I get a little tired of being a Cockney, too, mostly because my mouth is getting crooked from talking out of one side of it all the time. But those are my only complaints. I was a star once on Broadway, and it’s a lot more fun to be an ‘almost ran.’” — Nydia Westman […]
