Only now does it occur to me... that the following quote, in toto and free of context, should probably be on an inspirational poster:
"I have lived through Talullah Bankhead and the death of Vaudeville. I don't scare easy."
Of course it helps that it's being recited by the inimitable Burgess Meredith to a young Anthony Hopkins, who at this moment is clutching a terrifying ventriloquist's dummy. Amen.
