pretendings:

Bankhead, Tallulah (1902-1968) Mae West usually gets credit for being Old Hollywood’s raunchiest wisecracker, but ole Tallulah Bankhead takes the cake:

  • When asked by gossip columnist Earl Wilson if she had ever been mistaken for a man on the telephone, the husky-voiced actress responded, “No, have you?”
  • Upon seeing a former lover for the first time in years: “I thought I told you to wait in the car.”
  • A famous quip: “I’ll come and make love to you at five o’clock. If I’m late, start without me.”
  • When asked whether she thought a certain male celebrity was a homosexual: “Well, d-d-darling, I really wouldn’t know. He’s never sucked my cock.”
  • After declaring that she never really had a strong intrest in making movies, she added that “[t]he only reason I went to Hollywood was to fuck that divine Gary Cooper.”
