Filmdom's favorite Jungle Princess. Dorothy describes Raymond Massey as a "charming pussycat", Betty Grable "the sweetest woman in the world", and Carole Lombard a "darling idol". When Bing Crosby and Bob Hope finally try to bounce Dotile off the Road to. . . films, boy does she wax caustic . We get an occasional peek at the perils of stardom- in Hurricane, she and John Hall were battered by twelve airplane engines, dry leaves, sulphur, and two thousand gallons of water. And after a hairdresser doused her with liquid dry cleaner to expedite the next "take", Ray Milland whisked her under a waterfall-- an unceremonious dunk that probably saved her eyesight. On the domestic scene, Lamour is unfailingly loyal toward her mother-- who shared her band-singing-to-Hollywood-stardom years-- and appreciative of second husband William Ross Howard III, a Baltimore socialite and father of her two sons. Lamour recounts the casts of movies , private parties, nights on the town-- and rounds of personal appearances.
