“I looked at it this way. To get people to like you, as a screen player I mean, I figured you had to sort of be their ideal. I don’t mean a handsome knight riding a white horse, but a fella who answered the description of a right guy.”

Happy Birthday, Orson Welles, (May 6th, 1915 - October 10th, 1985)
“A film is never really good unless the camera is an eye in the head of a poet.”

The death of Valentino is a terrific loss to the screen. He brought it happiness„ beauty, and art as perhaps no other has. His loss can never be replaced; there was and can be only one Valentino; a great artist and one of the finest gentlemen it has ever been my privilege to term ‘friend’.” - John Gilbert
Happy Birthday, Rudolph Valentino (May 6th, 1895 - August 23rd, 1926)
“Women are not in love with me, but with the picture of me on the screen. I am merely the canvas on which women paint their dreams.”
