Till next time!

“She was so alive, modern, frank and natural that she stands out like a beacon on a lightship in this odd place called Hollywood.” - Barbara Stanwyck

“Has there ever been such a laugh? It had the joyous sound of pealing bells. She would bend over, slap her perfect calf, or the floor, or a piece of furniture. She would sink into a chair or to the ground. She would throw her head back. And you would be riveted by that neck. That throat.” - Garson Kanin

“Marvelous girl. Crazy as a bedbug.” - Howard Hawks

“Did you ever see anyone more beautiful? There was never a person in this world who was so generous, so full of fun.” - Clark Gable
