Apr 8
Canadian actress. "She was "America's sweetheart" of the silent screen, and one of the first film stars; won an Oscar, 1929, for "Coquette.""

"I was forced to live far beyond my years when just a child, now I have reversed the order and I intend to remain young indefinitely."

"Make them laugh, make them cry, and hack to laughter. What do people go to the theatre for? An emotional exercise. . . . I am a servant of the people. I have never forgotten that."
It would have been more logical if silent pictures had grown out of the talkies instead of the other way around.
"Supposing you have tried and failed again and again. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing that we call " failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down."
One of the great penalties those of us who live our lives in full view of the public must pay is the loss of that most cherished birthright of man's privacy.
