Personal Quote:

I used to think that when I was slaving around in unknown stock companies as a child that the world was made up of blizzards, thermometers that registered a hundred in the shade, icy cold dressing rooms, lumpy iron bedsteads, fried steaks, one-night stands and salary ghosts that never walked.

Trivia:

Her wicked voice lending as The Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) was ranked #10 on the American Film Institute's villains list of 100 years of The Greatest Heroes and Villains. See more »
