"Most people have no idea what goes into making a picture. They think a girl just walks in and gets photographed by the movie camera, and then walks out. That was never the case, but particularly when the thirties pictures were being made, an actress spent more time getting ready to make a picture than she would spend in front of the cameras. We were really selling glamour to the country then, and most folks were starved for it. So great care went into clothes, and a fitting was sure to be a tedious thing for an actress. It required four or five hours at a time, sometimes eight or ten hours of getting weary just sitting around, being measured and fitted and refitted. Most stars hated their fittings, I think, more than any part of the business. Marlene Dietrich was one of the more cooperative ones because she recognized the necessity, but it was still work to her. Carole, though, was patience itself. She could turn just about anything, even a dress fitting, into some kind of a party.” - Edith Head
