Hermione Gingold Quotes:

Honore Lachaille: I'll tell you about that blue villa, Mamita. I was so much in love with you, I wanted to marry you. Yes, it's true. I was beginning to think of marriage. Imagine, marriage, ME! Oh, no! I was really desperate! I had to do something. And what I did was the soprano!
Madame Alvarez: Thank you, Honore. That was the most charming and endearing excuse for infidelity I've ever heard.


[Gastone brings some champagne for Mamita]
Gigi: Can I take a glass of champagne, Mamita?
Madame Alvarez: Have you lost your mind, Gigi? Of course not!
[heads towards the kitchen; Gaston quickly slides his glass over to Gigi]


Gaston Lachaille: May I come in?
Madame Alvarez: Please, Gaston... no papers... no scandal.
Gaston Lachaille: Madame, will you do me the honour, the favour... give me the infinite joy of bestowing on me... Gigi's hand in marriage?
Madame Alvarez: Thank Heaven!

Hermione Gingold Facts
In her appearance on Merv Griffins late night show circa 1971, she came on after Zsa Zsa Gabor and Charro. These two had been cat-fighting for most of the show. Hermione strode out carrying her toy terrier and said in stentorian tones, "You don't mind if I bring out another b---h, do you?".

Originally a dramatic actress with a coloratura soprano singing voice, her throaty purr developed and deepened as a result of vocal nodules, which her mother insisted she not remove.

Interred at Forest Lawn, Glendale, California, USA, in the Great Mausoleum.
