Personal Quote:

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

Trivia:

Though not known to the public at the time Eagles had a long history of drug and alcohol problems. The studio heads did their best to keep this information out of the press and continually reported that her frequent trips to the sanitarium was due to a hereditary illness. When she died, her manager insisted that she had died of a stroke but the truth wasn't discovered until many years later. See more »
