"I am really rather like a beautiful Jersey cow, I have the same pathetic droop to the corners of my eyes."
"The only times I’m self-conscious are-when I’m Jean Arthur. In front of the camera I lose my identity completely, and with it I lose my timidity. As a character in a play I feel as if I can be what people expect. As Jean Arthur, I never feel as if I know what people expect."
Happy birthday Gladys Georgianna Greene aka Jean Arthur!! (October 17, 1900 -
J une 19, 1991)
Her courtesy delights everyone. She finds no excuse for people who indulge in being temperamental. She’s everything I knew she would be! She’s lovely, charming, intelligent, witty - a person of great understanding and loyalty. She’s so hospitable, so vital, so interested in so many things. She knows everything that’s happening in world events and is so well-informed beyond the present because she reads another book nearly every night. It’s a joy to know she has a grateful heart. Actually, she devotes much time and money to charities. There’s nothing artificial about Barbara. She has personal friends who are her family. But she refuses to have her generosity publicized.
