Barbara Stanwyck photographed in a sweater with her nickname “Missy” on it.
Well, I have a negro maid (Harriett Coray), she’s been with me 30 years, and she’s not a maid she’s a friend. When she first came to work for me in 1938 or 9 she started calling me Missy, and the crews gradually picked it up and so did my family. I like it very much because she gave it to me - and I love her.

We spent every evening at Les Monseigneurs; it’s a tiny place where they serve only champagne, with the sweetest music in the world.The orchestra made an arch with their bows for us to walk under when we left each night.They loved me - even if Bob says it was his huge tips they went for !
