Q:

Thirties.

Ah:

Thirties, because in the Forties she was in the Red Cross, or something. And after that she never did very much in the way of the entertainment would. And we didn't ever see--the only actor I can remember who associated at all with her was Bob Montgomery because he was running some television program that she appeared, on a few T.V. shows. Did I know the other people in that world? No.

Heiskell:
