"Naturally, I was thrilled but being the first year, the Academy Awards had no background or tradition, and it naturally didn`t mean what it does now. Had I known then what it would come to mean in the next few years, I`m sure I`d have been overwhelmed. At the time, I think I was more thrilled over meeting Douglas Fairbanks." - on receiving the very first Best Actress Oscar
