“There ought to be a law against any man who doesn’t want to marry Myrna Loy.”
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.”
