Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[asked, later in her life, why she was so broke considering how much money she made in her long career] What became of my money? Well, I was not used to wealth when the studios began dumping it into my lap. The dollars slipped through my fingers like sand and went to pay for automobiles, houses and one great item--clothing.


Her parents were married 6th February 1888. See more »
