Evelyn Venable Quotes:

Jack Sherman: I want to thank you, Bob, for everything.
Col. Gray: It's been a great pleasure having you and your family with us, even for so short a time. Quite different from Philadelphia, isn't it?
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Yes, indeed. We lived there for six years, but I never got used to the dreadful noise of the horse cars.
Col. Gray: Jack told me that you'd sold your house there.
Jack Sherman: We sold everything, lock, stock, and barrel. Took Greely's advice to go west, and here we are to find our fortune. I'm depending on your help for that.
Swazey: Oh, there's plenty there for the finding, if we're lucky.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: I do wish we didn't have to go back home to Lloydsboro.
Jack Sherman: Now, dear, we've settled all that.
Col. Gray: This wild country is no place for women and children, and where Jack's going it's even rougher. Besides, Jack told me you have a lovely home waiting for you.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Oh, that sounds too grand. It's really just a cottage my mother left me.


Aunt Sally Tyler: Can that be Lloyd that Becky is carrying?
Miss Lloyd Sherman: Hello, Mother! How do you do, Aunt Sally Tyler?
Aunt Sally Tyler: How do you do, dear?
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Where have you been?
Miss Lloyd Sherman: I've been to see my grandfather, and I threw mud on him.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: You threw mud on him?
Miss Lloyd Sherman: Yes, because he poked me with a stick. Then I got mad and he got mad, and we hollered at each other.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Oh baby, how could you disgrace Mother by going over there looking like a dirty little beggar?
Miss Lloyd Sherman: I didn't beg him for anything.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: You've been a very naughty girl, and you're going to be punished. Becky, take her inside. Give her a bath and put her to bed.
Becky Porter: Yes'm.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Oh, I'm terribly upset. I wouldn't for worlds have him think I encouraged her in going there.


Jeremy Higgins, Union-Pacific representative: Do you have the deed here?
Jack Sherman: It's at my bank.
Jeremy Higgins, Union-Pacific representative: Well, you bring it here, and I'll have a check for you. That's the way the Union-Pacific does business!
Jack Sherman: This is more cure than all the medicine. I'm well again!
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Oh no, you're not! You just stay right here.
Jack Sherman: The best part of it is, we won't have to ask your father for anything, and he can't laugh at me for being a failure! Darling, you go to the bank. I'll give you a note to take to Mr. Jennings. You bring back all the papers I left there. The deed is with them.
Elizabeth Lloyd Sherman: Oh, it's almost too good to be true!

Evelyn Venable Facts
During World War II she worked extensively for the Red Cross.

Taught Latin at UCLA.

For years it was believed that Evelyn Venable's father was so strict that he had it written into her Hollywood contract that there would be no kissing scenes in her films, and , indeed, she does not have any kissing scenes in her most famous films -- "Death Takes a Holiday", "The Little Colonel" and Disney's "Pinocchio" (in which she is the voice of the Blue Fairy). But the rumor was apparently not true.
