She was a clean-cut, American, wholesome girl - too plump, but beautiful in a way. We tried to teach her how to pose, how to handle her body. She always tried to lower her smile because she smiled too high, and it made her nose look a little long. At first she knew nothing about carriage, posture, walking, sitting, or posing. She started out with less than any girl I ever knew, but she worked the hardest… She wanted to learn, wanted to be somebody, more than anybody I ever saw before in my life. - Emmeline Snively ( Head of the Blue Book Modeling Agency )
