It has been a while since I posted some quotations so without further ado let's see a few more:
Showman Phineas T. Barnum knew there were fortunes to be made in show business, since
"Every crowd has a silver lining."
Hollywood producer Sam Goldwin
"Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined."
"What we want is a story that starts with an earthquake and works its way up to a climax."
Pianist and mordant Oscar Levant:
"Strip away the phoney tinsel of Hollywood and you find the real tinsel underneath."
Mae West in the 1930s, playing the bad girl:
"I used to be Snow White, but I drifted."
Girl: Goodness what beautiful diamonds you are wearing!
Mae West: Goodness had nothing to do with it, dearie!
Comedian Will Rogers:
"The movies are the only business where you can go out front and applaud yourself."
Errol Flynn, whose private life was expensively wild, confessed:
"My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income."
Mickey Rooney recognizes:
"I'm the only man who has a marriage licence made out 'To Whom It May Concern!'"
