“I couldn’t wait for success, so I went ahead without it.” —  Jonathan Winters   “Might make me sound like a hippie or some kind of kook, but OK: You have to tell people you care about them – my kind of comedy does that. I think mostly I’m telling people I love them…And the […]

“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 […]

“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?

“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 […]
