Miriam Hopkins Quotes:

Max Plunkett: Do you love me?

Charlotte Lovell: A ridiculous, narrow-minded old maid. What else can she ever think of me?

Miriam Hopkins Facts
She was Margaret Mitchell's first choice to play Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind (1939).

Turned down the part of Ellie Andrews in It Happened One Night (1934). Claudette Colbert was then given the role and won a Best Actress Oscar for her performance.

In July, 1972, despite concerns about her health and a premonition that she shouldn't travel, she flew to New York to attend the special screening of "Story of Temple Drake," celebrating the 60th anniversary of Paramount Pictures, followed by a gala party in her honor at the Museum of Modern Art. Just as she had feared, she suffered a major heart attack and died in her hotel suite before getting back to her California home.
