"Oh, shit, good manners"

"The trouble with putting armour on is that, while it protects you from pain, it also protects you from pleasure."

[on Bette Davis] "I walked onto the set [of "All About Eve"] and there's Bette and I say 'Good Morning,' and she said, 'Oh, shit, good manners,' and I felt as if I'd been hit in the face with a wet flounder and I never spoke to her again. She called me a 'Bitch,' okay."

"All the producers I met were like Darryl F Zanuck — deeply humourless flesh-grabbers, who only understood about virgins and whores. If you happened to be neither, they went into a state of total confusion and didn’t know how to cast you."

Celeste Holm (29th April 1919 - 15th July 2012)

Read my recent tribute to the lady on her 95th birthday.



  1. Aww, Celeste was great, despite her good manners ;-)

    1. After Lana Turner she was the campest "special guest" in Falcon Crest! Jx
