"I made five or six exposures, all more or less like her typical movie stills. She moved her hair this way and that way, chin up and down, but what bothered me most was her hair. I said: It’s too bad we’re doing this with that movie hairdo. At that, she put her hands up to her forehead and pushed every strand of hair back away from her face, saying ‘oh, this terrible hair’. At that moment, the woman came out, like the sun coming out from behind dark clouds. The full beauty of her magnificent face was revealed".

- Edward Steichen
