Funniest Role: Dulcy in Not So Dumb (1930)
Memorable Quote: “Somebody told me I should put a pebble in my mouth to cure my stuttering. Well, I tried it, and during a scene I swallowed the pebble. That was the end of that.”
Davies is a legend for many reasons: she's one of the greatest comediennes of the silent era, she's the inspiration for Kane's wife in Citizen Kane, and she continued to have a thriving career in talkies despite a childhood stutter. Her comedic charms weren't only displayed on set, however. Davies is a known for getting President Calvin Coolidge wasted by giving him wine and claiming it was fruit juice.
