My name is Georgie. I like movies and music. Talk to me about Buster Keaton, Shinya Tsukamoto, and the Legendary Pink Dots (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)




Clara Bow proved most helpful to me with suggestions and advice. She told me, “What rehearsals are to the stage, spontaneity is to the screen.” In this art, more than any other form of acting, the first principle is to be yourself. She is. She is never camera conscious and acts with the same ease on the set as she would in her home. In some of our scenes together she was supposed to scold me severely. But while the camera ground away at our quarrel and caught all her pretty frowns, she was really saying “Eddie, you’re doing fine! Just flash those banjo eyes and there’s nothing to it!”

Eddie Cantor, My Life Is in Your Hands (1928)
