Joan Crawford, in an interview w i t h Al 1 columnist Bob Thomas, l a t e r lambasted Marilyn for allegedly believ- "ng her own publicity. Few slories he has written have caused so much fuss. Out of this one came a more conservative Monroe. e * * * HERE'S LcMaire's version: Marilyn's sexy publicity had brought on some blasts from women's clubs and her latest picture, as a result, was not doing well. The studio was worried. "Then came t h i s dinner. Darryl Zanuck, head of the udio, ordered me to dress arilyn for the dinner. Even oe DiMaggio, then her boy lend, called me to make sure ere would he no slip-ups. , "I designed a dress that was lie and in good taste. It ooked sexy on her.
