“If someone’s going to talk about me, I’d want it to be positively. The way many write, you’d think only bad things were interesting. If we don’t think positive, what’s the use? It’s a lot more fun, you know.” (Dorothy Stratten)


“I think I had a more European outlook about the body and sex. The body is in no way dirty, and sex is something beautiful to give to and share with a lover. It has nothing to do with promiscuity, because I only believe in being in love with one man at a time.” (Dorothy Stratten)


“I can honestly, and proudly, say that I never was on the casting couch. Oh, of course there have been advances from certain men in the movie industry, but nothing overwhelming.” (Dorothy Stratten)


“I don’t think a powerful man would be interesting unless he’d be nice, attractive, with or without the power. Men are interested in powerful men. Women are interested in terrific men!” (Dorothy Stratten)
