Famous quotes containing the word coast:
“Too many Broadway actors in motion pictures lost their grip on successhad a feeling that none of it had ever happened on that sun-drenched coast, that the coast itself did not exist, there was no California. It had dropped away like a hasty dream and nothing could ever have been like the things they thought they remembered.”
—Mae West (18921980)
