Paida Prentiss Look Back: Starci^t she was working with, the places she'd been—and find me sitting in the apartment, morose, gloomy, depressed. She had to bottle up half of what happened because she couldn't share those things with me, because I couldn't take it. So she held it in. Even when we did our TV show, "He and She',' together, we both became overly sensitive without realizing it. We'd work all week getting the show ready, film it on Friday, and on Saturday we were so depressed and miserable . we couldn't even get out of bed. By Sunday we'd begin feeling like ourselves again, and on Monday we were back at work. Finally it dawned on us what was the matter, and we'd recognize the signals: the oncoming headache, fatigue—and we could handle the situation better. F.W.: To what do you credit your successful marriage? Dick: I think the secret is that we live separate but not separated. By that I mean we are very different in many ways, and we live our own lives accordingly. But we stay together. When we're apart for even a short while because of our work, it's awful. If Paula is not around, I feel very, very lonely. Of course, our feelings hit highs and lows, like a roller coaster. But we understand that. When we feel a depression coming on we immediately clue one another. F.W.: You have no children. Would you like some someday? Dick: I think we are about ready for a child now. At first we didn't want any because we felt they'd tie us down. I guess they will to some extent. But we have friends who just had a baby and they said you suddenly have feelings you never had before. F.W.: Paula, do you ever lose your temper? Paula: Often. And then I yell. This way Dick knows exactly where he stands. F.W.: And what does he do? Paula: He yells back. F.W.: Did you ever hit one another? Paula: Certainly. F.W.: And who won? Paula: It was a draw. F.W.: Dick, what do you do to keep in shape? Dick: I do aerobics. Tony Perkins got me started on that. And I run five minutes in place every day. Tony is fantastic. He can do 20 without getting tired. He also gets me involved in word and parlor games, although I-hate them. But he's the kind of guy who doesn't ask if you want to play. He just says, 'i know a great game, and you do so and so," and before you realize it, he's got you doing it! F.W.: Dick, you're Jewish, and Paula, you're Catholic. Is there ever any conJ3ict? Dick: No, it was never an issue. We both grew away from it, so that by the time we were married, it was no problem. Paula: I think the Catholic and the Jewish religions are very much alike. They are. rich, colorful and beautiful. I like being a Catholic, and I love Jewish people. The other day I went into a fish market and watched this man slice sturgeon. I liked it so much I told Dick I wanted to become Jewish. He didn't think that nm was enough reason KlUI February 11, 1»73 121 NEW DISCOVERY! A Groundcover That Thrives Where Other Plants Despair!
