Personal Quote:

[on her career in general] I did a couple of pictures with Harold Lloyd [Welcome Danger (1929) and Feet First (1930)] as well as one with Gloria Swanson, called Indiscreet (1931). Gloria has a nude shower sequence in that one! I never wanted to be in pictures. That was my parents' idea. I didn't like movies. It was not what I wanted to do. I am not an exhibitionist!
