1There's no point putting your heart and soul into a part when you know in advance it isn't worth the trouble. I'm not speaking as a dedicated actress. Enthusiasm and hard work are requisites for any job a person undertakes. I tried working just for money once and it made me almost physically ill.
2When you say ambition to me - that's when you get me started! My greatest ambition is to be the whoppingest best actress in Hollywood. You can't blame a girl for trying! I don't want to be classed as a 'personality'. Something to stare at. I want to have my talents respected, not only by the public but by myself.
3I'm tired of that smart New York set who blast Hollywood, calling it an intellectual void. Plenty of silly things are done here, but Hollywood isn't so very screwball. They do fine things in the theatre and splendid things out here too. Baddies crop up on both coasts. I dislike it when critics sell Hollywood short.
4The privilege of being a screen actor is having the opportunity of seeing yourself as others see you. Believe me, it is very traumatic. When I saw myself, I thought 'Get a train ticket and leave'.
5[on touring, pre-Hollywood, with 'Hellzapoppin'] It was really hellzapoppin all the time. For a year and a half we traveled from coast to coast. During one stretch we made sixty-four one-night stands in succession. It got so we weren't conscious of what town we were playing in. Just sixty-four days of haze. We were congenial and jolly except when we were dead for lack of sleep. But in such close intimacy there was no privacy. My dream then, my joy now, is to be alone - to lock my apartment door and not even answer the phone.
#Fact
1In 1957, the sensuous star released an album of torch songs and romantic ballads titled "Lizabeth".
2In the 1948 film "Pitfall" - she performed in the role of a fashion model that a married man and insurance investigator, starring actor Dick Powell, could not resist. And in the 1949 film "Too Late for Tears," also starring Dan Duryea, Scott killed not one but two husbands. The film advertising poster for that movie proclaims, "She got what she wanted ... with lies ... with kisses ... with murder!".
3Lizabeth Scott, who played an aloof and alluring femme fatale in such film noir classics as "I Walk Alone," "Pitfall" and "Dark City" died at the age of 92. Scott, who also starred as a gangster's wife opposite Humphrey Bogart in "Dead Reckoning" (1947), died January 31, 2015, of congestive heart failure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, her friend Mary Goodstein told the Los Angeles Times. Scott, a sultry blonde with a smoky voice in the mold of Lauren Bacall, played nightclub singers in 1947's "I Walk Alone" opposite Burt Lancaster and in William Dieterle's "Dark City," a 1950 release that marked Charlton Heston's first major Hollywood role. Scott displayed a rarely seen comic touch when she appeared opposite Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis in the 1953 film "Scared Stiff," and she played a press agent who discovers a young country singer, performed by Elvis Presley, in 1957's "Loving You".
4Born Emma Matzo in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Scott, who was of Russian Heritage, attended the Alvienne School of Drama in New York City. She worked as a model for Harper's Bazaar and in 1942 landed a role as the understudy for Tallulah Bankhead in Thornton Wilder's Broadway production of "The Skin of Our Teeth" - though the tempestuous Bankhead, who did not get along with Scott, stubbornly never missed a performance. A bit later, with backing from producer Hal Wallis, Scott was signed to a contract at Paramount Pictures. She made her film debut in "You Came Along" (1945) opposite Robert Cummings - Ayn Rand was a co-writer of the screenplay - followed by "The Strange Love of Martha Ivers" (1946) with Barbara Stanwyck, Kirk Douglas and Van Heflin. Her other films included "Desert Fury" (1947) with John Hodiak, "Easy Living" (1949), "Paid in Full" (1950), "The Company She Keeps" (1951) - as an ex-convict - "The Racket" (1951) with Robert Mitchum, "Stolen Face" (1952), "Bad for Each Other" (1953) and "The Weapon" (1956).
5Asked in a 1996 interview why film noir had become so popular, Scott said: "The films that I had seen growing up were always, 'Boy meets girl, boy ends up marrying girl, and together, they go off into the sunset' - and suddenly in the 1940s, psychology was taking a grasp on society in America. That's when 'they' got into these psychological, emotional things that people feel. That was the feeling of film noir. ... It was a new realm, something very exiting, because you were coming closer and closer to reality".
6Upon her death, she was cremated and her ashes were given to her longtime friend, Mary Goodstein.
7During the 1940s, her image was used in magazine adverts for Royal Crown Cola.
8Out of all the films she appeared in she considered her favorite film to have been You Came Along (1945).
9From the 1970s until her death, she had been engaged in real estate development and volunteer work for various charities, such as Project HOPE and the Ancient Arts Council of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
10Campaigned for Ronald Reagan three times during his political career.
11Was considered for the female leads in Love Letters (1945) and The Affairs of Susan (1945).
12Early in her career critics claimed she was imitating Tullulah Bankhead and Lauren Bacall.
13Was a model for the Walter Thornton Agency.
14Her 21st birthday party at New York's Stork Club was hosted by Hollywood reporter and press agent, Irving Hoffman.
15Her sultry looks won her modelling assignments as a teenager and she was understudy to Tallulah Bankhead before coming to the attention of Paramount Studios who put her under contract.
16In Italy, Rina Morelli was her official voice, but she was also dubbed by Andreina Pagnani, Tina Lattanzi and Dhia Cristiani in I Walk Alone (1948), Dark City (1950) and Scared Stiff (1953) respectively.
