"If you talk to God you're religious. If God talks to you, you're psychotic."

Olive Thomas – Beatrice Fairfax (1916)

“Miss Thomas, an Olive for whom it is no effort to cultivate a taste, isn’t going to desert the creeping pastels, after all. She has signed a contract with the newly formed Selznick Picture corporation (Myron Selznick, son of THE Selznick) at a cheerful salary. She wants to act in adaptations from well-known plays, else, she says, she might as well have stayed with Ziegfeld’s Follies.” — Photoplay, March 1919
