My boyfriend’s broke so made me hide in the trunk of his car to get in the Drive-in.

May 16, 1964, Saturday. Bitchen day and night and DAVE.

Went to the audition with Jean Louis. I was so scared….. He’s a great man. I read a cold script. He said I would be a Star someday. Said I had unusual talent and he accepted me. I almost started crying. Went home and laid in the sun. Dave picked me up at seven. Told Sandy Block and I they had no money and wanted us to get in the trunk of the car. We were so mad. We got to the Drive-in and the show was so bad…”Flesh Eaters” and “Witches Curse.” My zipper broke and I was miserable all night. Didn’t kiss Dave once at the show. After the show we went to play pool, but it was full so we went up in my hills, while Sandy played games, only kissed Dave goodnight.


From being told I had talent enough to someday be a Star,
