Agnes Moorehead's quotes

  • [on failing to receive an Academy Award after her fourth nomination] I guess I'll remain a bridesmaid for the rest of my life.
  • Permissiveness in society springs from a lack of standards. There must be a rule of behavior, an appreciation of basic values.
  • [on "Oh, Calcutta", a play in which most of the cast sheds its clothes and appears nude onstage] Nudity begins at home. After all, who wants to see everybody flying around in their birthday suit? It takes all the magic and illusion out of the theatre.
  • [on Marlon Brando, after visiting the set of The Chase (1966)] A wild set--with the great Marlon Brando. You couldn't hear him speak. How do they get on? One take a day practically and he gets $1,000,000 a picture. It's beyond me.
  • It's an unavoidable truth. Fear of life closes off more opportunities for us than fear of death ever does.
  • [on what she prefers to be remembered for]: I've been in movies and played theater from coast to coast, so I was quite well-known before 'Bewitched' and I don't particularly want to be identified as a witch.
