Irene Dunne – A Pictorial


“I know all the swear words. I just don’t use them. There are worse things in life than being called a Lady.” ~ Irene Dunne

“Now don’t you dare call me normal. I was never a Pollyanna. There was always a lot of Theodora in me.” ~ Irene Dunne

“Nothing can replace the excitement, the magic, and yes the glamour of a Ziegfeld show.” ~ Irene Dunne


Irene Dunne and Cary Grant from “The Awful Truth” (1937)


“I appeared with many leading men. But working with Cary Grant was different from working with other actors. He was much more fun! I think we were a successful team because we enjoyed working together tremendously, and that pleasure must have shown through onto the screen. I will always remember two compliments he made me. He said I had perfect timing in comedy and that I was the sweetest smelling actress he ever worked with.” ~ Irene Dunne
