Oppenheimer Barbara Anderson of "Ironside:" "Why I Quit TV for And Hearth" A year ago, when Barbara Anderson-- policewoman Eve Whitfield on NBC's "Iron- side"--was interviewed, she said, "My only burning ambition is to learn how to cook so I can be a good wife and raise a big family. I hope to marry someday, and I don't care if I ever work again after that." Of course, no one believed her--until she quit the series a few weeks ago. Why? To get the answer, I interviewed her at the Beverly Hills apartment in which she lives with her husband of two months, Don Burnett. She was dressed in a tennis outfit, wore no make-up, no false eyelashes ("What a relief!") and talked about her new activ- ities since she left the show: playing tennis at least twice a week, sailing every Wednes- day with the Ladies Nautical Auxiliary, cooking, cleaning house, painting, throwing parties for her husband (who is an invest- ment broker), and, most of all, looking for a house. "For the first time since I was 16, I have time on my hands," she told me. "When I started in the series, I thought we'd last two years at the most. But it just .went on and on." (The series, which stars Raymond Burr, has completed its fourth season.) "When you are a woman, with all that make-up, you have to be at the studio at six o'clock in the morning and never get through until six in the evening. I like to work, but I can't see myself married to a series." Marriage has given Barbara an entirely new perspective on life. "I didn't quit because I was bitter. As far as the series is concerned, I don't think it is the best thing on the air, but it's not the worst, either. I am just not sure that acting is still my profession. When I was 16, I never wanted to do anything else. I never dated much, mostly because fellows made me terribly nervous. I still remember my first date. I was in the 10th grade. I was so excited about it that I got the dates con- fused; I was ready a week early, and I thought I'd been stood up! That was the only date I had that year." Actually, Barbara had a fairly normal childhood. She was born in Brooklyn, but when she was still an infant, her parents, John and Kathleen Foster, moved to the sprawling suburbs of Hatboro, Pa. (popula- tion 2,000). By the time she was in high school, she moved to Tennessee, where her father was stationed in the Army (he later became a postman). Barbara was 20 when she forced herself to leave home. She headed for Hollywood, where her blonde good looks, startling green eyes, and petite figure ("I never seem to gain weight; I don't drink or smoke or eat sweets") had a lot to do with her quickly being snatched by a major studio. She also had plenty of drive and talent, as proven by the fact that she won an Emmy for her role in "Ironside." "It is easy to become narrow-minded in this business," Barbara insisted, "to forget that there is another whole world away from the cameras. I want a family soon. But right Barbara with husband Don: "I didn't quit because I was bitter. far as the series is concerned, I don't think it is the best thing on the air, it's not the worst, either. I am just sure that acting is still my profession." now, nothing is more fun to me than making curtains for our 25-foot sailboat." I've heard this kind of talk before from actresses who went back the moment an- other part was offered to them. I think Barbara's chances of being just a contented housewife are at least 50-50. Not only be- cause it was she who quit the job, and has turned down all television and film offers since then, but because of Don Burnett. (Don used to star in the "North by North- west" television series for NBC. He retired on his own volition from show business eight years ago, to succeed in his present job as investment broker.) Barbara insists shVs home-oriented. "I like being married, and I can hardly wait until find the right house for us. So far, I must have looked at 100 houses! Then I can get my country-French furniture out of storage and really set up house!" There is much can do for Don as a housewife that she not do as an actress, she feels. "I can help my husband a lot with his career," Barbara told me. "A woman is important to a man investment banking. He doesn't ask me what he should buy and sell, of course, but I can entertain, provide a good home for him, be a good mood when he comes home from at night--which I couldn't if I'd been in front of the cameras for 12 hours! In other words a wife." ·» 12 Family Weekly, July 18,1971
