Gilda Farrell in Design for Living

Gilda Farrell in Ernst Lubitsch’s Design for Living (1933):

“Don’t ever bow to double chins. Stay an artist. That’s important. In fact, the most important thing.”

“I’m fed up with underwear, cement, linoleum! I’m sick of being a trademark married to a slogan! Tell ’em I’ve got the advertising blues, the billboard collywobbles! Slogans and sales talks morning, noon, and night…and not one human sound out of you and your whole flock of Egelbauers!”
