"Plump? Don't be polite at the expense of the truth. I'm fat out here [San Francisco] and thin in the East. If I train down to thinness here, I'll be a skeleton to Broadway when I get back." -- Louise Dresser (Bizarre Los Angeles)

“Plump? Don’t be polite at the expense of the truth. I’m fat out here [San Francisco] and thin in the East. If I train down to thinness here, I’ll be a skeleton to Broadway when I get back. Odd, isn’t it, that so few people are satisfied with themselves? The fat people want to be […]

“I was afraid at first of the lights. I had heard so much about Klieg eyes, I thought I’d get them the first day – and I almost did. The novelty of the blue lights fascinated me, and I couldn’t draw my eyes away. After a few days, however, they became accustomed to the glare. […]

“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 Woodsman. 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 […]

“Diction! Say! That’s the thing that’s ruined more stars than made ’em. Diction! That’s what’s wrong with half the old-timers. They started learning how to talk and they flounce around the sets with their ‘cawnts’ and ‘Chewsdays’ and all that stuff. Say, audiences don’t want that sort of stuff, see? Audiences want to hear actors […]
