“I don’t believe the average person realizes the amount of time and attention these roles require. Because there is no dialogue to memorize and no lines to learn, the beginner may think one casual reading of a photoplay sufficient. This is untrue. A screenplay should be studied with as much care as the most important […]

“I started out when I was a little bit of a kid in the Newsboys’ Quartet and I didn’t get much fun out of it. I just plugged along singing and dancing and acting on the vaudeville circuits until I joined a stock company in Chicago, and then it was just a see-saw of vaudeville […]

“I don’t think the public is in the least interested in what we used to do on the stage, or how wonderful we were several years ago. It is what we are and do now that interest them. So why should I bore people stiff by telling all about my stage experience?” — Mabel Trunnelle […]

“I was born at La Crosse, Wisconsin, but moved early to Texas, where dad was engaged in the cattle business. After his death I found it necessary to get out and hustle. I didi – hustled right onto the stage, at the advice of James O’Neill, a graduate of my alma mater, Notre Dame College, […]

“Contrary to the general belief, I am not an Indian. My parents are Spanish, descendants of an aristocratic family. I was born in Los Angeles and educated there. I was supposed to be destined for the operatic stage and went thru a long course of voice cultivation; but the Moving Pictures attracted me, and I […]

“I had always wanted to act and used to go home and mimic the people I had seen before a mirror. I wanted to be like Lovey, too, but I was an awful gawk I suppose, like most growing girls. My sister didn’t think that I really had any dramatic talent and I just could […]
