Roberta Haynes - Conversotion More Important Than Glamor Actress...
Conversotion More Important Than Glamor Actress Roberta Haynes Finds Gl's In Korea Don't Care For "Sexy” Approach By EMILY BELSER HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 14 INS-Actress Roberta Haynes declared today it isn’t wiggles and lowcut custumes that catch the fancy of GI’s over-seas — “it’s sweetness and sincerity and just plain talk the soldiers crave!” Sleek, smoky - haired Roberta, who just returned from an entertainment stint in Korea, added: “Those boys are lonely and depressed. Most of them are very young and very shy and afraid of actresses who try to act like actresses.. “They want us to act like people and they’d almost rather talk to us than watch the show. They’re hungry for girls to talk to and they don't really care how you look. Wears Sweaters, Skirts “I wore sweaters and skirts most of the time and couldn’t even keep my hair combed because the boys were always rubbing it ‘for good luck’.” Roberta’s haircut these days is a first cousin to that worn by comedian lshkibibble. “They kept asking me what was wrong with my hair!” she laughed. The actress said many soldiers are “suspicious” of visiting entertainers. “The question I was asked most,” she recalled, “was why had I come to Korea? These boys have the idea most entertainers come for the publicity hoopla rather than for a sincere desire to lift the morale of the troops. Like To Talk “They don’t like to be taken advantage of in this way,” she added. She discovered the boys weren’t much interested in Hollywood as a glamour village. “They love to talk but not one of them asked about Hollywood. They prefer to discuss everyday things such as crazy haircuts- like mine! “This is why they don’t like the actressy actresses who show off all over the place. They can’t possibly feel a camaraderie for this type of phony. “In Korea it’s better for a girl to be just a girl!” From the safety of her snug, little Hollywood home, Roberta didn’t mind recalling that most members of the troop wore long, red underwear as protec t i o n against the sub-zero Korean winter. One notable exception was Terry Moore who preferred a two- piece ermine bathing suit.
