Classic Hollywood Always
Happy Birthday Rose Joan Blondell! (30. August 1906 - 25. December 1979)
"There’s a fine line between underacting and not acting at all. And not acting is what a lot of actors are guilty of. It amazes me how some of these little numbers with dreamy looks and a deadpan are getting away with it. I’d hate to see them onstage with a dog act."

   “I was lonely always and I turned to acting. I would get dressed in my mother’s old clothes and I would read poetry aloud — not poems of nature, but funny poems and sad poems — and I dramatized them.    Sometimes I acted for old people, and I was happy to do it for them, but not for young people because I was terrified of anyone my age. As far back as I can remember, however, I have always wanted to be an actress. It has been my one, all consuming desire.    It has been and still is my life.”
Ingrid Bergman (29.08.1915 – 29.08.1982)

Happy Birthday Rose Joan Blondell! (30 August 1906 — 25 December 1979)

"Joan Blondell had it all: looks, talent, energy, humor. If she never became a top-flight superstar, the fault lies mostly with Warner Brothers. At MGM, Joan could have easily had Jean Harlow’s career; at Paramount, Claudette Colbert’s or Carole Lombard’s; at Fox, Loretta Young’s; at RKO, Ginger Rogers’. Some of the fault lies, too, with Blondell herself, who later admitted, “The instant they said ‘cut!’ I was whammo out of that studio and into the car … In order to be a top star and remain a top star and to get all the fantastic roles that you yearned for, you’ve got to fight for it and you’ve got to devote your twenty-four hours to just that; you’ve got to think of yourself as a star, operate as a star; do all the press that is necessary … What meant most to me was getting home, and that’s the truth.” But if Joan Blondell got slightly lost in the shuffle at Warners, she still managed to turn in some delightfully snappy performances and typify the warm-hearted, wisecracking Depression dame. And when she aged, she did so with grace and humor." — Eve Golden.
