Ronald Colman's quotes

  • Fame has robbed me of my freedom and shut me up in prison, and because the prison walls are gilded, and the key that locks me in is gold, does not make it any more tolerable.
  • [to his agent] Before God I'm worth 35 dollars a week. Before the motion picture industry I'm worth anything you can get.
  • They talk of the artist finding liberation in work, it is true. One can be someone else in another, more dramatic, more beautiful world.
  • Whenever I hear of young actors down and out and broke in New York (and what a cliché of show business it is supposed to be!), I remember my own experiences in 1921 - and find it no laughing matter by any criterion.
  • I persevered in those English films, and persevered is the word, though I am the first to admit that I was a very bad actor in them.
  • Why should I go to dull parties and say dull things just because I wear greasepaint and make love to beautiful women on the screen?
  • [asked if The Story of Mankind (1957) was based on a book] Yes. But they are using only the notes on the dust jacket.
  • I visited agents, knocked at producers' doors; no one was interested. I was just another stage actor on tour, on the outside of Hollywood looking in. I returned to New York depressed and disappointed.
  • A man usually falls in love with a woman who asks the kind of questions he is able to answer.
