Nita Naldi comments on her film persona




“The fans just assumed that I was in real life as I appeared on the screen. Women loathed me; I was warned not to appear on the public beaches, and everywhere I went people used to look upon me as something unreal — like griffins and unicorns. But time changed that. Women don’t seem to hate me any more.” — Nita Naldi (1897-1961)
