Jennifer Jones is a strange, restrained, shy girl with little of the small talk and frivolous comments on life that characterize the average young woman of her years. Talking to her, you get the impression she is telling you just what she wants you to know and not one thing more. She isn’t given to early confidences and you have to know her well to get under her skin, so to speak.
Jennifer and I got off to a very bad start. Our first interview was held in my home after she had won the coveted “Bernadette” role in “Song of Bernadette.” She either forgot to say or she had been warned not to mention that she was married to Robert Walker and is the mother of two little boys.
