"She (Jean, Marian’s Sister) was determined that I should crash the studio gates, and with that end in view, spent weeks haunting casting offices, telling them all about ‘little sister,’ even forgetting her own career. I finally did get a chance to make a test at Pathe. We waited for six hours before I received any attention. My makeup had to be done over and my hair dressed. When the big moment arrived, I was so tired, I really didn’t care whether I stepped before the camera or not. The director, supervising the test, told me to cry-it was exactly what I wanted to do. I cried all over the place, and he thought it was great acting. I got the contract."
