Friday Photos: True Hollywood Confessions December 28, 2018 by Robert J. Avrech 6 Comments “Another thing I had to cure myself of was the desire for adulation, and the approbation of my fellow man. It started when I was a small boy and played football at school. If I did well they cheered me. If I fumbled I was booed. It became very important to me to be liked. It’s the same in the theater, the applause and the laughter give you courage and the excitement to go on. I thought it was absolutely necessary in order to be happy. Now I know how it can change, just like that. They can be applauding you one moment, and booing you the next. The thing to know is that you have done a good job, then it doesn’t hurt to be criticized.”—Cary Grant Rembrandt (1606–1669) Girl in a Picture Frame(The Jewish Bride).1641oil on panelHeight: 105.5 cm (41.5 ″); Width: 76 cm (29.9 ″) Ho FanPattern, 1956 Japanese posterFor a Few Dollars More, 1967 Irene Dunne in a publicity photo for Roberta, 1935, the story of a fashion designer and her American friends (Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Randolph Scott).

I almost gasped out loud as Cole introduced me to her. No make-up—unmatched beauty. It was the only time I saw her at anything but a distance.” –—Lauren Bacall, speaking of her encounter with Garbo at Cole Porter’s home.
