"Oh, it makes me wild when I think about the rubbish that’s printed! Most of it’s trash, believe  me, but the worst part of it is that people believe what they read. The written word has some kind of sanctity. I can’t even discuss the book that Joan Crawford’s daughter wrote; it makes me ill to think of it. Joan and I were friends for fifty years and the person I knew wasn’t like that. Why don’t people consider the source? I worked with Christina and saw how that mind operates. The book Margaret Sullavan’s daughter wrote is just as bad. Maggie gave up the best years of her career to raise those children and that’s what she gets. And these so-called secret lives infuriate me. That stutf used to be confined to the Police Gazette. Now there seems almost a diabolical desire to destroy - the rule of sensationalism at any cost. Imagine calling Errol Flynn a Nazi spy. My God! He was never sober long enough. How can they print such things? Recently some bird in Toronto swore that he recruited me as a United States spy during World War II. How idiotic!  I spent the war years in New York and Washington working for the Red Cross. What do they want of us? They’re really having a field day tearing apart all these people they adored for so long."

"The only times I’m self-conscious are-when I’m Jean Arthur. In front of the camera I lose my identity completely, and with it I lose my timidity. As a character in a play I feel as if I can be what people expect. As Jean Arthur, I never feel as if I know what people expect."

Happy birthday Gladys Georgianna Greene aka Jean Arthur!! (October 17, 1900 - June 19, 1991)
