Bonus Trivia

.

"Every once in a while, I need to have my fix. I think it's mainly when I need inspiration I look at the old pictures. I don't find it as much in the new stuff. I love Carole Lombard. I think she's wonderful. Gloria Grahame was really great. Garbo. Dietrich. People knew how to create an illusion. Now everything is very realistic and straightforward. Everyone is grunge." - Kelly Rutherford quoted in The New York Times, April 12, 1994
