    Jeanne Eagels, Ziegfeld girl, 1923

    " She talked fast and gestured with her hands. Few knew or understood her. She was explosive, mercurial, neurotic, loyal, generous, and sweet. She usually ignored all except the humblest members of her company. She hated most managers, interviews, movies, gossip, autograph seekers, night clubs, and Actors Equity. She liked dogs, auction sales, dill pickles, and ice cream with cherries. Her philosophy was Never deny. Never explain. Say nothing and become a legend. The cause of her untimely death at the age of 35 [in 1929] was never clearly established, but pathology reports focused on the cumulative effects of alcohol or drug abuse."
