"Even though this was the swan-song period of the studio system stem, the Fox lot was still run like old times. But there were ominous signs of the end drawing near. In Rome, production costs were soaring as the shooting of Cleopatra went months over schedule and budget terriflying the front office. Only the highly publicized romance of its stars, Elizabeth Taylor and Burton kept the film from being shut down. Darryl Zanuck, who was the head of the studio, had an art deco office and everyone gossiped about his French girlfriends whom he tried to make stars. Marilyn Monroe, before her deluge, was the queen of the lot, beloved by all except the front office, who constantly complained that she held up production, taking the overcosts on Cleopatra out on her. My bungalow was next to the bungalow of producer Jerry Wald who always had more pictures in production than on the lot. We'd met Jerry Wald and his Connie, at the Gary Coopers', and we used to go to their house a couple of times a week to run all the latest movies. Jerry was always very kind to me. Lunch in the Fox commissary was a daily ritual not to be missed for the starstruck like me. At the writers' table, Charlie Brackett told the best Hollywood stories. Clifton Webb, a contract player with great panache, was usually there, sometimes with Marilyn Monroe, as was Shirley MacLaine, when she was making CAN-CAN with Frank Sinatra, and Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr, who were doing the remake of LOVE AFFAIR. One night a party at Romanoff's, which was the swellest restaurant in town, Marilyn arrived late, having just been sewn into the tightest green sequin dress imaginable by the wardrobe department at Fox and taught some of the Hollywood society ladies, such as Mrs. Billy Wilder and Mrs. Fred de Cordova, how to walk her famous walk roaring with laughter as she led them in a line. Audrey Wilder and Janet de Cordova, who started out as actresses and married well, both became great friends of mine. They were then and remained for years afterward two of the town's most glamorous ladies. Those were heady times. How carefree it all seemed......" ( Dominick Dunne )
