Dec. 28, 1940: Stellar Routine –  She goes to the Brown Derby for "luncheon," then sits and uses the telephone for hours, depriving hungry people of a booth … She changes the color of her hair from a nice brown to a carroty pink … She announces that "this marriage is the real thing" — and starts calling her lawyer before the rice has been swept off the church steps … She tells the loyal fan club that helped boost her to success that "her studio has requested that she not have a fan club" … Her destitute father (and sometimes her mother) must sue her for support … She refuses to date anyone less important than a leading man or associate producer, Jimmie Fidler says.
