Personal Quote:

[Retrospectively on her career] I enjoyed it an awful lot, and it was very easy work, very easy. I just worked because I enjoyed it, and I enjoyed the money. Then I had some difficulties that I would like to forget, and now I'm through with it, and it's out of mind. It's hard for me to recall things. See more »


She reportedly had difficulties with MGM chief Louis B. Mayer during her three years under contract to that studio, which resulted in her being blacklisted by other major studios and relegated to work in the lower-rung studios known as "Poverty Row". See more »
