Myrna Loy and Clark Gable, on the level about Hollywood

Myrna-Loy-Clark-Gable-Too-Hot-to-Handle“I was glamorous because of magicians like George J. Folsey, James Wong Howe, Oliver Marsh, Ray June, and all those other great cinematographers. I trusted those men and the other experts who made us beautiful. The rest of it I didn’t give a damn about. I didn’t fuss about my clothes, my lighting, or anything else, but, believe me, some of them did.” Myrna Loy

“This “King” stuff is pure bullshit. I eat and sleep and go to the bathroom just like everybody else. There’s no special light that shines inside me and makes me a star. I’m just a lucky slob from Ohio. I happened to be in the right place at the right time, and I had a lot of smart guys helping me–that’s all.” Clark Gable

    I love it when stars tell it like it is. Funny thing is, I also love it when they lay on the BS and dazzle us. I think I just love old Hollywood and there’s nothing anyone can do to change that.

    Good (and rare) when stars give credit and appreciate The Little People who did The Work!

      Okay, how many cinematographers consider themselves little people 😉 ?
