Personal Quote:

I'm the greatest actress in the world and the greatest failure. And nobody gives a damn.

Trivia:

Her two sound films, The Letter (1929) and Jealousy (1929), were remade with Bette Davis (the Davis version of "Jealousy" was retitled Deception (1946)). Davis also played a character loosely based on Eagels in Dangerous (1935). See more »
