Sat and talked with Joan Fontaine the night before she left for Mexico and I have seldom seen her as happy. She had an engagement to meet Preston Sturges and there is a very good chance he may direct “The Affairs of Susan,” her first picture for Hal Wallis at Paramount. Her eyes sparkled as she told me if he didn’t direct it at least he would write the story and she knew that would make it the picture she has been waiting for all these months.

Joan was very cute when she said she had cut her household expenses because she hadn’t worked for so long. The man who was with us offered to lend her money. “Oh,” she said. “I don’t need money. I have saved enough so I can live without ever working, but I can’t be extravagant.”
