is like any movie fan and has her favorites. She keeps a list of the leading
men she wants to play opposite in pictures. Tyrone Power, Paul Muni, Henry
Fonda and Randolph Scott have been checked off. But Charles Boyer, Spencer
Jimmy Stewart remain on the list un-checked. She says she is still amazed when she sees herself on the screen.
She gets up at about 5 every morning, especially when working. Sunday is her day to sleep late. She can't stand the idea of breakfast in bed. A bed, she'll say, is no place to eat.
She is very exacting about her bed. She loves a big bed, and their bed was built in the bedroom especially for them. The carpenter and cabinetmaker decided, after reading her specifications for the bed she wanted, that it was easier to build
it in the room than knock down walls and doors to get it in after it was built.
She recently moved to a new house in Holmby Hills. She decorated it and furnished it herself.
She would like to play comedy in pictures, and she would like to make a picture in France.
She admits that she is inclined to be jealous of her husband and her best friends, but won't let it get the best of her.
She likes to sleep in a different sort of garment almost every night. She dresses for bed. Sometimes she'll wear pajamas and sometimes a nightgown. Her husband designs her nightgowns and pajamas.
She has a system for never staying angry with her husband. There is a room, next to the bedroom, which they privately
call the Mad Room. If one gets angry with the other, he or she must go into this room. The Mad Room is decorated with photographs of themselves in loving poses and a phonograph with their favorite records. They have never remained angry with each other for very long.
