OW: I wanted to try and promote her career. Nobody even glanced at Marilyn. You’d see all these beautiful girls, the most chic girls in town, who spent fortunes at the beauty parlor and on their clothes, and everybody said, “Darling, you’re looking wonderful!” And then they’d ignore them. The men, not the women. The men would gather in the corner and start telling jokes or talking deals. The only time they talked about girls was to say whether they scored with them the night before. I would point Marilyn out to Darryl, and say, “What a sensational girl.” He would answer, “She’s just another stock player. We’ve got a hundred of them. Stop trying to push these ***** on me. We’ve got her on for $125 a week.” And then, about six months later, Darryl was paying Marilyn $400,000, and the men were looking at her—because some stamp had been put on her.
