"I still haven't any tricks. I have to feel each scene. If I'm supposed to be unhappy, I have to think of something in my own life that has made me unhappy. I can't turn it on and off like a faucet - I have to feel it."

"Why, I admire Mr. Gable's acting very much, but I believe the choice of a leading man depends on whether he is suitable for the role!"

"I'm so proud of England that it's impossible to describe. You can't describe things as big as that."

"I used to wonder why the movies spent so much money on lovely fabrics and fine workmanship. It seemed to me that they at least could fudge a little on sewing the seams. But it turns out that the camera sees a lot more than the human eye does, and if a dress isn't exactly right on the screen, it looks sleazy."

"The idea of being recognized wherever I go holds no enjoyment. I would like to be able to shop in a store or go to the theatre without people saying 'That's Deanna Durbin.' I would like to have people like me because I was just Edna, not Deanna. I would like to walk down a street and people admire me because of the dress I was wearing or the look in my eye or the bounce of my hair - not because I was a movie star."

"I have started writing an autobiography, and if I thought I was busy before, I'm now finding out what it's like to really have no free moments. Thought I might call it 'Now It's My Turn' as I think it's about time I put certain things straight once and for all."

"I wish I could say that I danced at the canteen, but you could never call it dancing. I am yanked from one pair of arms to another and the orchestra is very loud and I try so hard to have conversations - and then someone else cuts in and you begin all over again."

"Thank you for your thoughtfulness and for your friendship. I wish I could answer you as I would like to, but I can no longer find the time to write to my many friends. I'll always be glad to hear from you and I thank you for understanding if you do not hear from me. It does give me pleasure to see that after over 40 years some of my films still find an audience."

"Oh, I loved all the controversy. And I think Felix Jackson was awfully smart instead of gradually changing me from a goody-goody girl into a woman of the world by letting me make a complete break. I've never been so happy in any moment of my career as I am now, because I like the directors they're giving me. I like the suggestions and ideas Mr. Jackson has for me. I want to play every sort of character. I want to do the things Irene Dunne and Claudette Colbert do. I want to be a great comedienne, a motion picture actress as well as a singer."

"I hate to play any game where I might lose money. And I'm particularly obnoxious at a race track. If I bet two dollars on a horse and he doesn't come in I want to murder him. The way I carry on you'd think I had lost a million."

"I'm tired of playing little girls. I'm a woman now. I can't run around forever being the Little Miss Fix It who bursts into song. I want to get out of Hollywood and get a fresh approach."

"Shyness comes from nothing to say. When you're with older people and you can't talk to them about anything interesting, naturally you're embarrassed. But if you study anything worthwhile whether it's music, painting or books - anything, you'll always have something to say that will interest people."

"I don't think I have a proper understanding of people who don't do anything, because I've never lived a life of ease and never want to. It's men and women who accomplish things who give me a thrill. In fact, the most wonderful part of success, to me, has been meeting great people, listening to them, studying them, and working with them sometimes."

"If you try to hold on to your little girl years when you're really grown out of them, you look foolish. If you try to be grown up before you really are, you're just as silly. But if you can manage to look and act just like you are, there's nothing at all to worry about."

"People put child stars on a pedestal. They expect them to be perfect little darlings and to remain that way when they grow up. People criticise them when these stars grow up and prove themselves to be human beings with their own faults."

"Sure I had a lot of fun and enjoyed things I otherwise wouldn't have had. But I also missed out on a lot of the joys of girls who lead normal lives. I'm one child star who grew-up to be happy."
