“She is the quintessential female sex symbol and one of the most influential characters of the twentieth century. She seems more recognized for her social and artistic repercussions than for her career as an actress. Although she showed enormous dramatic talents, she is considered one of the great actresses of comedy, and has bequeathed to us some of the most unforgettable characterizations in the history of cinema.”
