Happy Birthday to Myrna Loy (August 2, 1905 — December 14, 1993)
“‘It’s a shaky business, too. A good break is likely to get you in, in the first place. And a bad break is just as likely to get you out. And if you’re out, you’re out. Then there is always someone coming along from the outside, someone newer, more colorful, more talented. Or you may have two bad pictures, fail to get the right material, and you’re gone with the wind…’
Myrna rose and walked to the window, looking down on the Hollywood which she, a schoolgirl from Montana, had so triumphantly conquered. She turned to face me; her mouth was smiling. But there was something deeper than laughter in her eyes.
She said, ‘It’s nine parts drudgery and fear and heartache and one part thrill and glamour. It’s all the things I’ve said it is, and more. And I love it—I love it.’”
