“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 […]

“Like Garbo I have been given many labels by the newspapers. ‘Very nearly as handsome as Valentino‘… ‘the masculine version of that mysterious fascination that is Garbo‘s.’ I am tired of being just a screen lover, and I hope some day to get a chance to be myself. I am rather like Greta in that […]

“They were testing girls for a flapper-bit and they gave me a cigarette to smoke. It choked me and I blew smoke out of my nose and my mouth — and I guess my ears, too — and I did it so badly they wouldn’t let me be the flapper.” — Betty Bronson in an […]

“I would rather play a part for love than money.” — Shannon Day “Dance? I always danced. Lessons? Never. I don’t know the first thing about the technique of it. Whenever the impulse came upon me to dance, to sing, to act, to draw, I just did those things. Always crudely, for I never had […]
