While shooting exteriors in San Francisco, Myrna, Bill Powell and his unofficial fiancée Jean Harlow were to stay at the St. Francis Hotel:
“At the St. Francis in San Francisco, they had reserved a Flyshaker Suite for Bill and me. The management assumed we were married. Already they considered us a couple after only five pictures together! Well, of course it was hysterical. Here was Jean, but we couldn´t be obvious about the situation with the press on our heels. To complicate the matters further, conventioneers had taken every other room except a little hall bedroom downstairs somewhere. I didn´t know what to do, but Jean was marvellous. “There is nothing for you to do,” she said. “We’ll just have to put Bill downstairs.” I never saw this room, so I don’t know how bad it was, but Bill complained bitterly, let me tell you, angling to get upstairs.”

It’s not just a game, anymore.

Men like me because I don`t wear a brassiere. Women like me because I don`t look like a girl who would steal a husband. At least not for long.
