Sy Scholfield quotes from "Looking at Hollywood" by Hedda Hopper, Los Angeles Times, 10 Sep. 1945, p. 11: "Stuart Holmes' wife Bianca is one of our famous astrologers ... Stuart said to me, 'You know, Menjou's Aquarius with Libra rising -- and they'll talk about anything, even if they know nothing about the subject.'"

Scholfield quotes Menjou for '12 o'clock at night' in "Illustriertes Familienblatt. Häuslicher Ratgeber für Österreichs Frauen" [Illustrated Family Newssheet: Domestic Advice for Austrian Women], 1927: "Selbstporträt. Von Adolphe Menjou. Da ich nachts um 12 Uhr geboren wurde, kann man unmöglich sagen, ich hätte in Pittsburg das Licht der Welt erblickt. Ich erkläre mich auch außer Stande anzugeben, ob es elektrisches Licht oder Gas war. Mit Details kann ich also nicht dienen. Dafür weiß ich aber genau, daß ich an der Culver Military Academy in Indiana und im Cornell College erzogen wurde..." (Translation: Self-portrait. By Adolphe Menjou. Since I was born at 12 o'clock at night, it is impossible to say that I saw the light of day in Pittsburg. I also declare I'm unable to state whether it was electric light or gas. Such details, I cannot supply. But I know that I was educated at the Culver Military Academy in Indiana and Cornell College...).
