George Clooney’s Comments on Anita Page…

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

George Clooney pays tribute to silent movie star Anita Page following her death over the weekend.

 

 

The veteran actress passed away in her sleep at her Los Angeles home on Saturday morning. And the Ocean’s Eleven star remembers the Hollywood legend as resembling a character from Charles Dickens’ novel Great Expectations and Norma Desmond from 1950 movie Sunset Boulevard. He says, “She looked like a cross between Miss Havisham and Norma Desmond. She had the oomph of a star who believed herself to still be big. She could walk into any party and the whole room would spin round. She’d talk about old movies and stars like Rudolph Valentino and Greta Garbo and weekends with Randolph Hearst.”
