Burn Before Reading: A Carly Allen Story

Quote of the Day 04.08.2017

It's Mary Pickford's birthday! This lovely lady was a Canadian/American actress, writer, director, and producer. Geez, talk about an overachiever! On top of all that, she won the second ever Academy Award in 1929.

Another one of my favorite quotes from her is: "Adding sound to movies would be like putting lipstick on the Venus de Milo." I would genuinely sell my soul to Hades to bring Mary Pickford back to life and watch a movie like Transformers with her just to see what she'd say.

Also, as she got older, she wanted to get back her Canadian citizenship so she could "die as a Canadian." I'm including this quote because I am looking for a Canadian wife so that I too can die as a Canadian.
