Actor meme » Deborah Kerr [1/2] Behind-the-scenes moments

She was a touch edgy now and then, but no temper - absolutely no temper. Of course, there was that day when Deborah and I were out in a life raft off Tobago, trying to catch the giant turtle we needed to keep us alive. The sun was blazing, the sea was rough, and we had been going through the same piece of action for hours. The director, John Huston, was behind us in the camera skiff, and pretty comfortable, I might say, while all the time he was bawling, “Faster Deborah; paddle faster. You’re not working hard enough.” Suddenly the flimsy paddle in Deborah’s blistered hands broke in half. For a moment she sat there, glaring at Huston. Then she picked up a piece of the paddle and flung it straight at John’s head. “There,” she said, “that will show you how ******* hard I’m working, Mr. Huston!”

I hate asking anyone for help so believe me this is completely out of my comfort zone but my family could REALLY use some help. We haven’t had fully functioning water in our house in over a year and a half due to a slab leak. I would very much like to move in with my Dad again and we could really use the help. It’s a constant struggle to do ANYTHING (even washing your hands is a pain). Anything you can spare would be a HUGE help! Thank you and I really appreciate it! <3



"Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering - because you can’t take it all in at once."

In addition to faith in God, I have faith in the future. No matter how bad things look at the time we’re gong through them, we do get through the dark days, and somehow, with time, they don’t seem quite so bad.- Barbara Stanwyck

"My father loved my mother madly and when she died, he went gypsy. I was raised by strangers, farmed out. There were no rules or regulations. Whoever would take me for five dollars a week, that’s where I was. So I really didn’t have any family."      She learned to live on the streets and to make the best of it. "We never played games, I never cared for games anyway. The only game I can remember playing is the game of fighting." She learned at a young age that her survival was based on self-preservation.     She was the leader of any gang she and her brother played with. Despite her quietness, the other children would turn to her when they were hurt or bullied. She never failed them.

 "Women stare at me, count on their fingers, look at my wrinkles. If I wear a long dress, they say, ‘What’s she trying to hide?’ If I wear a short one, they say, ‘What’s she trying to prove?’ It’s one of those battles you can’t win."

Happy Birthday Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff aka Doris Day 
April 3, 1924

"I like joy; I want to be joyous; I want to have fun on the set; I want to wear beautiful clothes and look pretty. I want to smile, and I want to make people laugh. And that’s all I want. I like it. I like being happy. I want to make others happy."

The stars are ageless » Cary Grant

"You know that I may never look at this without remembering the quiet patience of directors who were so kind to me, who were kind enough to put up with me more than once, some of them even three or four times. I trust they and all the other directors, writers and producers and my leading women have forgiven me for what I didn’t know. You know that I’ve never been a joiner or a member of any particular social set, but I’ve been privileged to be a part of Hollywood’s most glorious era."
