quote by Frank Capra

In our film profession you may have Gable's looks, Tracy's art, Marlene's legs or Liz's violet eyes, but they don't mean a thing without that swinging thing called courage.

— Frank Capra

Devotion Marlene quotations

I am a Scorpio, and playing the seductress appeals to me.

There are a lot of women throughout film history, like Marlene Dietrich or Mae West - those are the women I was always attracted to. The bad girls.

Marlene Dietrich and Roy Rogers are the only two living humans who should be allowed to wear black leather pants.

My mother, she killed me, My father, he ate me, My sister Marlene, Gathered all my bones, Tied them in a silken scarf, Laid them beneath the juniper tree, Tweet, tweet, what a beautiful bird am I.

I knew I wanted to be a performer and do comedy at 5 years old.

My dad's wife, Marlene Rosenbaum, was boiling water and she goes, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" I said, "A comedian." And she laughed and laughed because she thought that was the cutest, funniest thing.

Well, I did Marlene 15 years ago and that's in the style.

It's somehow similar and not similar because Marlene was much more aggressive, funny and sad.

Marlene Dietrich for the way there was something so unique about her - the way she entered into a frame and everybody looks at her and the way she winks and looks up.

My chief literary influences have been Paul Laurence Dunbar, Carl Sandburg, and Walt Whitman. My favorite public figures include Jimmy Durante, Marlene Dietrich, Mary McLeod Bethune, Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Marian Anderson, and Henry Armstrong.

I have a big box of autographs. I took photographs of me and Marlene Dietrich, me and Ida Lupino. I took pictures of Myrna Loy and Joel McCrea in front of the studios. I loved Hollywood. I have 500 autographs and 500 photographs I took.

I think movies also played a part in my interest in fashion.

I've also always been hooked on the movies. From my early teens on, I always had my favorite movie stars who I admired, like Carole Lombard and Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich, and the men in my life who I loved, like Gary Cooper.

I separate the performer from the private citizen because it works for me.

That gives the surprise element to my show. It doesn't change my playing. But if in a business suit they would think I was crazy. It's like putting Marlene Dietrich in a housedress.

I would love to play Marlene Dietrich in a movie.

My dad's from Germany and so I feel like that would be a really interesting person to play.

When I grew up, you wanted to look like Marlene Dietrich, Betty Grable.

Fortunately, I didn't know that I really wanted to look like Lena Horne. When I grew up... black stars were stigmatized. Nobody wanted to look like Lena Horne.

Without the support of my mom, Marlene, I would not be the person I am.

She has been my main supporter throughout my career, and I owe everything to her. This is a small way that we, as players, can pay tribute to her and other hockey moms, and it is all for a good cause.

I'm going to shoot a muffin off Marlene's head.

People like Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne, Marlene Dietrich and Sammy Davis Jr.

all walked me down this path of entertainment.

I grew up on Bette Davis movies, and Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe.

Marlene Dumas is one of the two or three most successful female artists alive, if you judge by prices. I've never reviewed her work, because I find nothing in it to get excited about no matter how hard I look.
