Here’s the August 1955 article from Whisper magazine referred to in my earlier post on Ronnie Quillan (thank you, EBay). Quillan actually provided the information for this story, so we have to assume it was at least somewhat accurate. In reading this sleazy, vicious account, it’s no wonder the scandal magazines got shut down.
I am not familiar with the name Patricia Hirsch, who is mentioned as a prostitute. However, a woman by that name pleaded guilty to vice charges in 1954 after being arrested in Malibu, according to The Times. And I cannot locate anything on Frank Harwyn Vanderveld II.
The saddest thing, of course, is Quillan’s disintegration. A tragic Hollywood tale.
