Famous quotes containing the words sybil thorndike, dame and/or sybil:

    We don’t want bores in the theatre. We don’t want standardised acting, standard actors with standard-shaped legs. Acting needs everybody, cripples, dwarfs and people with noses so long. Give us something that is different.
    —Dame Sybil Thorndike (1882–1976)

    my youth i shall never forget
    but there s nothing i really regret
    wotthehell wotthehell
    there s a dance in the old dame yet
    toujours gai toujours gai
    Don Marquis (1878–1937)
