“I most emphatically would not mind being stranded on a dessert island, but I’m afraid I couldn’t get by with a single male ! Life being what it is, different human beings are inclined toward different long suits and virtues charmes, if you prefer in which they’re specialists. So if you don’t mind, I’ll take the excursion with a dozen gentlemen, all tried and true. I hope you won’t mind the fact that they all hail from Hollywood. Not having met Toscanini, William Saroyan, Lucius Beebe, Sir Anthony Eden, Hank Greenberg or Mahatma Ganhi, I’m not in a postion to judge very well. Here they are :

  • GLENN FORD heads the list because he knows how to make a fire with two sticks and that can be very helpful, unless you’re fortunate enough to be stranded with a flintrock or a cigarette lighter that works.
  • ROBERT TAYLOR is definitely an ungetalongwithoutable. Palm trees and sand can become very monotonous. Handsome Bob would provide some excellent scenery in his own right.
  • BRIAN AHERNE is a must, if only because he could read the Oxford Book of English Verse so beautifully. And what’s an island or a romantic adventure, without poetry ?
  • CARY GRANT because he never takes anything seriously. He would be the balance wheel fot this gay lark. Neither flood nor famine would perturb him.
  • DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS JR., by all means. Because he is consumed with the ambition to play Hamlet. What would be a more logical setting for him to practice up ? For want of a better subject, I would be his Ophelia.
  • CLARK GABLE rates a portfolio in this unholy twelve because he is Clark Gable, which is recommendation enough.
  • BING CROSBY – Imagine an island interlude without Bing’s crooning ! I’d just as soon not be stranded. Bing could come and name his own price.
  • JOHN CARROLL for his wonderful sense of humour, his gift for making a lie seem truer than a multiplication table, no matter how fantastic the tale. When he wasn’t spinning tall tales he could be wrangling with the natives and conning them out of their bridgework.
  • GARY COOPER would be super. A wonderful shot, he’d bag us wuld turkey. A level-headed citizen under pressure he’d be our Rock of Ages.
  • GEORGE SANDERS – Worth his weight in rubies. Sinister but nice, he would be on hand to keep the lady conscious that life can be real, life can be earnest, as only such a distinguished screen « wolf » can do. A little harmless frightening would be okay.
  • W. C. FIELDS – Dead weight ? Not on your life ! Mr. Field in motion is superb entertainment, which is a must-needed commodity on any desert island.
  • EDWARD JUDSON – Because adventure is exciting, romance is fascinating, glamour is soul-satisfying and Edward Judson is my husband.”
