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

Anna Held

 

Anna Held (19th March 1872 – 12th August 1918) was a Polish-born stage performer and singer on Broadway. While appearing in London, she was spotted by impresario Florenz Ziegfeld, who brought her to America as his common-law wife. Her fame seems to have owed more to Ziegfeld’s promotional flair than to any intrinsic talent, and she did not gain critical acclaim. But her uninhibited style inspired the long-running series of popular revues, the Ziegfeld Follies.
