    Happy Birthday Barbara Stanwyck!
    (July 16, 1907-January 20, 1990)

    When we were shooting Golden Boy, the stages were dingy, dirty, and poorly ventilated. And the film wasn’t as fast in those days as it is now which necessitated the use of more electrical equipment, which, in turn, created heat. So anyone working from 8:45 in the morning until 7:30 at night could find it to be an exhausting experience. But when we would wrap production, and the staff and the cast and the crew would head for fresh air and home, very often Barbara would say to me "Golden Boy, get your ass into that set dressing room because we’re going to run tomorrow’s work." For an extra half to three quarters of an hour we would rehearse. She wanted me to be good. So if anyone ever needed a term for courtesy and consideration, generosity, and above all, professionalism, they would only need two words. One: Barbara. And the other: Stanwyck.

    Happy Birthday Ginger Rogers!
    (July 16, 1911-April 25, 1995)

    In everything that I do I learn and try to put it to use. I have learned to go through life not into it. It`s like a boat. You must not let the water in or you`re sunk. Of course, I`ve made mistakes and I have had failures, but I do not dwell on them because people don`t care about garbage. When I make a mistake it`s like a bad leaf on a lettuce - I throw it out into the waste basket.

    -Ginger Rogers

  10. Miss Wright shall not be required to pose for photographs in a bathing suit unless she is in water. Neither may she be photographed running on the beach with her hair flying in the wind. Nor may she pose in any of the following situations: in shorts; playing with a cocker spaniel; digging in a garden; whipping up a meal; attired in firecrackers and holding skyrockets for the fourth of July; looking insinuatingly at the turkey for Thanksgiving; wearing a bunny cap with long ears for Easter; twinkling on prop snow in a skiing outfit while a fan blows her scarf.
