Glorious Quotes from Classic Hollywood Actors

27 Apr

Just like the previous post, I’ve compiled my preferred actors from the Hollywood’s Golden Age and their notable unwritten citations regarding their impeccable existence as a public figure.

Henry Fonda
One-Take Fonda

“If there is something in my eyes, a kind of honesty in the face, then I guess you could say that’s the man I’d like to be, the man I want to be.”

James Cagney
The Professional Againster

“There’s not much to say about acting but this. Never settle back on your heels. Never relax. If you relax, the audience relaxes. And always mean everything you say.”

Marlon Brando
The Pioneer of Method Acting

“I don’t think it’s the nature of any man to be monogamous. Men are propelled by genetically ordained impulses over which they have no control to distribute their seed.”

Paul Newman
The Gravelly Voice Classic Actor

“I can say fairly safely that I didn’t really know much about acting until I got to be in my fifties.”

Spencer Tracy
The Man with Lopsided Fedora Hat

“I couldn’t be a director because I couldn’t put up with the actors. I don’t have the patience. Why, I’d probably kill the actors. Not to mention some of the beautiful actresses.”
