Polly Bergen (1930-2014)

Polly Bergen quotes:
"When you feel what you've done fulfills yourself, makes you happy and makes people around you happy."
"The thing is, when you see your old friends, you come face to face with yourself. I run into someone I've known for 40 or 50 years, and they're old. And I suddenly realize I'm old. It comes as an enormous shock to me."
"You look at the road you could have taken, you know, I just think that's interesting... I've been on a lot of roads and I had to hitchhike on a couple of 'em... I have to be very honest: There's not an awful lot of regret in my life. I think that, you know, you learn from everything, and then, sometimes, you don't."
" have no idea about digital or celluloid or any of that. All I know is that movie is a movie. Whatever happens, I don’t think the public cares. All the public wants is they want that product that means something to them and that they can connect to. I think that content is what matters and that you care about to content and it affects your life or it doesn't." 
 “You know, I’ve been discovered so many times. I just do what I do. This is not an effort to become a star again. I’ve done that already. This is an opportunity to do what I love… What could be better than spending the latter part of your years doing something that gives you joy?” 


  1. Polly Bergen worked tirelessly for a woman's right to choose and was vocal about her own experience. She will be missed, a lovely person inside and out.

  2. Really liked her. Seemed like she had an excellent handle on the art of living well and also a lot of good common sense.

  3. Love the picture with Gregory Peck - chess - half & half for the little Coke?? - Salem cigarettes - those manly glasses - Ms. Bergen so chic - many evocative details...
