Talk:Mamie Van Doren
- My best asset is my brain. Without my brain, I don't think the rest of me would be too hot.
- I came to Hollywood determined to follow in Jean Harlow's footsteps, but I was determined not to die young. My hope was to endure. And endure I have.
- I don't wear panties anymore – this startles the Hollywood wolves so much they don't know what to pull at, so they leave me alone.
- There is a history of calamitous and violent deaths among the glamorous girls that boggles the mind and chills the blood, especially if you're one of the few survivors... As young women we were told that we were infinitely desirable and beautiful, only to discover that there was always someone coming up behind who was more desirable and beautiful. Our profession is perhaps the most competitive in the world. For, to be glamorous, to be beautiful, is to be doomed eventually to be disappointed.
