"This girl with the haunting eyes is so new to Hollywood that you haven’t seen her yet - but as soon as she learns English (and she’s acquiring it fast), she is scheduled to play opposite Ronald Colman. She is twenty-two, brunette (at present), and gave up her career as Soviet Russia’s most famous screen actress to start her screen life anew in the American manner. Well, Garbo did it!" - Motion Picture magazine, November 1932

"

Little Lady Flapper is really old-fashioned; but in her efforts not to let anyone discover that her true ideal is love-in-a-cottage, she “flaps” in the most desperately modern manner.

She likes her freedom, and she likes to be a bit daring, and snap her cunning, little manicured fingers in the face of the world; but fundamentally she is the same sort of girl as grandmamma was when she was young.

The chief difference is that she has more ambition, and there are more things for her to wish for, and a greater chance of getting them.

"
