"I wouldn't know what to do with myself if I retired. I'm an actress, and I'll take any part they give me. I have to work." --Sylvia Sydney in a 1990 interview

"I just know Tim [Burton] and I were great lovers and great friends in another life 3,000 years ago." --Sydney quoted in BOXOFFICE, November 1996

In a 1977 interview, Sidney spoke of how producers came to typecast her as "the girl of the gangster, then the sister who was bringing up the gangster, then later the mother of the gangster, and they always had me ironing somebody's shirt." --From her obituary in THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 2, 1999

"The actress, with her saucer-shaped eyes and low voice, could play tough or vulnerable, and her work was always intelligent and never sentimental. She was rarely recognized with awards, perhaps because she made it look easy." --From the DAILY VARIETY obituary by Richard Natale, July 2, 1999
