Personal Quote:

[describing what it was like to work at Universal, where she was under contract, as opposed to other studios] At Universal they wanted us to use as many of our own clothes and accessories as we could. The other studios, like RKO, made or purchased everything for us.


Once lived in Hollywood at "The Studio Club" which was a home for aspiring actresses run by Mrs. Cecil B. DeMille. See more »
