Although Lorraine Bridges did record a track of 'Come out, come out, wherever you are!' for the movie "The Wizard Of Oz," it is Billie Burke's voice that appears on the soundtrack, not Lorraine Bridges's.

[On Hollywood] "To survive there, you need the ambition of a Latin-American revolutionary, the ego of a grand opera tenor, and the physical stamina of a cow pony."

 

By the time you get your name up in lights you have worked so hard and so long, and seen so many names go up and down, that all you can think of is: `How can I keep it here?` On her husband, Florenz Ziegfeld: Ziegfeld has been portrayed as a man who pursued women. I have even come across a word which, in regard to him, is not only vulgar but incredibly inaccurate. The word is Chaser." By all the pink-toed prophets, Flo Ziegfeld was never that! Flo never pursed any woman. He was cool and aloof and difficult. But there were times, more times than I prefer to recall, when he made a woman eager for his approval by a mere look, or a small expression, or by a slight grasp of her elbow, a low mumbling request to dance. That was all the effort he ever had to make. The story of one noted dancing girl about how Flo Ziegfeld used to batter down her door is a confection of sheer poppycock. I tell you: I know better.
