Ramon Novarro and Chiquita - c. 1920s
Happy Birthday to Ramón Novarro (February 6, 1899 — October 30, 1968)
“I want to do simple stories that are concerned less with the physical side of life than what goes on in people’s hearts and heads. Spectacle bores me. It is human beings I love—I’ve always watched them, tried to find out what went on inside, why they did thus and thus. If I can put some of that on the screen, accurately and beautifully, I shall be satisfied.”
