Classic Hollywood Always

“My real life began with my marriage,” Grace said. “Sometimes, looking back after so many years, I think I really hated Hollywood without knowing it. I had lots of acquaintances there, and people I enjoyed working with and learned a lot from. But I found a great deal of fear among people in Hollywood—fear of not succeeding, and fear of succeeding but then losing the success. I’ve often said that it was a pitiless place, full of insecure people who had crippling problems. The unhappiness out there was like the smog—it covered everything. And I didn’t want to have to go along with all those illusions about youth when I was older. I had to be in my makeup chair at seven in the morning when I was twentysix. Rita Hayworth [who was thirty-seven] told me she had to be ready at six. I heard that Joan Crawford and Bette Davis [fifty and forty-seven, respectively] had to show up at five. What did that predict for me, if I stayed in the business any longer?” Grace Kelly (November 12, 1929 - September 14, 1982)

Happy Birthday, Claudette Colbert (September 13, 1903 - July 30, 1996)

Some women think if you don’t expect too much you won’t be let down. I always expect miracles. Sure, I’m let down. But they’re near miracles.

I can’t believe Rita Hayworth and Fred Astaire made only two films together! They were perfect for each other!
