It's strange how things come around isn't it? Long forgotten memories come back to us,and we find more there than we envisaged! I saw recently the obituary in the Times of Gloria DeHaven, a name I had completely forgotten, but remember now from my early film going years. She was blonde and ebullient, and a musical film actor, as I remember her. Apparently she was an actress too, appearing not only with Lucille Ball, but Joan Crawford and Paulette Goddard also. Ms deHaven was married four times, was a friend of Nancy Reagan, quoted Ingrid Bergman's mantra, (that one needs good health,and a bad memory), listened to Tommy Dorsey's Big Band, and enjoyed READING THE NOVELS OF DAPHNE DU MAURIER. A rather tenuous link, but a timely reminder that a public face rarely reveals a whole person. Although, admittedly, the reference to Daphne came in Gloria deHaven's 'resume' of 1940! So, 'yer pays yer money, and yer takes yer choice! Best Wishes all Sam
