I was awfully fond of Gerald. I remember one favorite occasion. I went to see him in his dressing room with my wife. And um and I was talking to him. A very lovely face poked its head around the door. And the next thing I remember was a fizz bottle flying past my head. Ha ha. And this would be Tallulah Bankhead. She was in the dancers, this was her first appearance here in England. And Gerald had tiptoed off because she was making lesbian advances towards the premiere...in Kentish (?) I once danced with Tallulah Bankhead. And she was completely blacked out. I had to lift her around the room.
