THE STORY: ~ -_ after I had been in Hollywood three months, writing the movie script for one of my own mystery books--and letting Jeff Haverson help me get over Oscar Craig. Jeff was director on my picture and a very attractive man. When Liz Leyden, my unpleasant collaborator," informed me vindictively that Jeff had been married for some time to Avis Vaughn, our glamor star, I was stunned. Jeff had been searching for an actress who looked enough like Avis to play her sister in the film, but not finding one had cast Avis m both roles. That day's rushes showed bit-player Madge Narney to be the perfect double for Avis. Kut the star didn't like the idea and threatened trouble. Jeff walked me back to my office afterwards, admitted his marriage, said Avis refused to divorce him. * * * IX His voice was a monotone.

I guess it was the way he looked that affected me. A " little chill played hide-and- seek up my spine. Liz, of course, was undisturbed by any such hypsersensitivity. He said bluntly and matter-of-iactiy, "Well, it's up to us." I asked him shortly what was up to us. He said to put on the peacemaking act. I still didn't see why it was our affair. This was strictly between Jeff and Avis. And I was beginning to get an idea.
