Lana Turner in ‘The Bad and Beautiful’, 1952.

“I´m not ashamed of what I am—of how I pass through this life. What I am has given me the strength to do it. At my lowest ebb I have never contemplated suicide. I value what is here too much. I have a contribution to make. I am not just take up space in this life. I can add something to the lives I touch. I don´t like everything I know about myself, and I´ll never be satisfied, but nobody´s perfect. I’m not sure where the next years will take me —what they will hold—but I´m open to suggestions.”

Lauren Bacall (September 16, 1924 ~ August 12, 2014)

Both on and off the screen Kate is one of the great women, great persons, of our time. Funny; I never resented her for a moment at Metro; I never regretted not getting a part she got. I’d sneak on her sets when I could, and admire, just plain admire. I keep throwing the word ‘class’ around, but she’s the top in that department.

— Joan Crawford on her peer Katharine Hepburn
