Ginger Rogers and Harold Lloyd share a kiss at the Shrine Flood Relief Benefit in Hollywood, February, 1937."Harold Lloyd, high in Shrine circles, not only acted as star contact officer in securing Hollywood talent, but when Ginger Rogers auctioned off a doll, and the auctioneer indicated that a kiss from the titian-topped dancing star would be thrown in for good measure, the bespectacled comic from a top gallery bid $400 and then thrilled an audience of 8.000 by coming down on the stage, handing over the money for the doll, and claiming then and there his osculatory bonus. Incidentally, Harold out bid Cary Grant, Ginger’s escort, by $50, and wiseacres wondered what Jimmy Stewart, Ginger’s steady of the moment, would say when he heard about the carryin’s on." - Hamm Beall, Hollywood magazine, April 1937.

Question :Is it true he (Connie’s Father) broke up you and Bobby Darin?
Connie: With a gun. He learned Bobby and I were starting to elope one night. We were 18, 19. I was doing the Jackie Gleason show and Bobby and I were cuddling in a corner. He barged through the rehearsal room of the Sullivan Theater with a gun in his pocket and a fierce determination to obliterate Bobby once and for all. One of the biggest regrets of my life is I didn’t marry Bobby.
