Girls in the altogether~

Image

 Holy Sister Don Basco~~clad appropriately for her vocation~~and it turns out likewise so to conform to the new Internet regulations~~released just this evening~~

~~

On the first day of first grade at Saint Jane Frances De Chantal Catholic grammar school, called by anyone of any social background~~CH~NAL~~Paul McKenna, Martin Kane, Patrick Kelley, Eugene O’Neil,Junior and I were seated in the front of our first class when there appeared before our eyes a midget nun~~clad head to feet in black, save for her face~that ringed in white~~the Spainish girls call these Holy nuns penguinos~~who declared, to our astonishment~~
 ~
 “I am Holy Sister Don Basco, I maybe small~~but so is the atom bomb.”
 ~
 That put an end to any and all interest in education for me~~forever.  All I could think was how to get out of that place as soon as I could~~forever~~
 ~
 On the way home from that first grade, all boys mentioned gathered around Paul McKenna~~already deemed by all of us as being what we came to know was called intelligent or something like that.~~
 ~~
 The others demanded to know “What is Holy Sister Don Basco and what is an atom bomb?”~~
 ~~
By Italian blood~~Mia Mommy a Milano~~I was already, at 5 years, set out to be a master criminal~~or so I thought.  Life always disappoints us.~~I went on to work in politics~~same dance~~different dance hall~~
 ~
At events, I pulled Paul McKenna aside from the others and said to him, very brusquely “Fuck that~~how long does it last?”
~
 “How long does what last–Don Basco–a full year, I’m afraid, Begg~~a full year~~
 ~~
 “Not the midget, McKenna~~the school~~how long does it last~~
 ~~
 “All of it?”~~
 ~~
 “Yes, all of it, goddamnit”~~
 ~~
 “We need a smoke,” McKenna told me~~
 ~~
 I’ll pause here to freely admit that I am recognized by nobody as the world’s leading authority on life in America in the 1950’s~~that would be our Mistress Karen~~The Boss~~of whom~~a bit more later~~but I was kicking around back then and I think my experiences were a tad different from those of the Boss~~
 ~~
 Paul McKenna and I headed to our little citadel in a dry creek bed in the wall of which there was a sort of cave~~far from the prying eyes of parents~~
 ~~
 We both fired up a Phillip Morris blunt end and sucked deeply on them~~
 ~~
 “Sixteen years~~if you’re very lucky”~~McKenna said ruefully~~
 ~~
 “Sixteen years?~~sixteen years?~~what did we do~~we’re only 5 years old”~~
 ~~
“If you’re very lucky”
 ~~
 “Very lucky?”~~
 ~~
 McKenna began leafing through a frayed copy of what in those days was called a “Girly magazine”~~and believe me, Gertrude~~it’s wasn’t what you’re thinking~~not in the least~~
 ~~
 The Italians are an impatient people, overbearing, harsh, direct and much desirous of solutions, not conversation~~I swatted the girly magazine away~~
 ~~
 “Yep–sixteen years~if you’re very lucky”~~
 ~~
 “How do we get out of this?”  Italians learn at the breast that “There is a way around everything, McKenna.”~~
 ~~
 “We don’t get out of this~study hard and apply yourself.”~~
~~
“Yeah?~and if I study hard and apply myself?’

 ~~

 “Oh, then you get to stay for 20 or more years”~~

 ~~
 “That’s a reward?~that’s a life sentence!!”~~
 ~~
 “It sure is.”
 ~~
 Years on, McKenna went up to Hav~ad and came home Summa, as~~
 ~~
 “There ain’t no Rs in Hav~ad, wee laddies~~
 ~~
 Years still on later, McKenna, sent out Summa from Hav-ad~~drives a carpet truck and installs carpets in Taos, New Mexico with a 17-year-old Mexican illegal~~so, sorry, Karen~~a Mexican “undocumented”~~we must say these things correctly, at least I’m hearing that all sides tonight~~
 ~~
 What I will say here is that McKenna’s illegal undocumented is a very pretty little thing but looking at bloodstock as I do with a well-trained eye, my fear is that those girls “will run to fat later, McKenna”~~
 ~~
 “Fat?  That’s OK~~I’ll just get another”~~
 ~~
 I’d always thought that it is surely myself and not McKenna, sent out from Hav~vad~~Summa~~who was responsible for the Navy attitude around here~~but of late, I am beginning to wonder on that~~
 ~~
 I wasn’t sent out Summa from anywhere and while I did do my 16 year bit~~it would be most disingenuous of me to say I attended any school~~for as soon as I could climb and pick locks~~I was out of every school I was supposed to be attending~~
 ~~
 I did graduate~~Not Summa~~Not Hav~ad~~and I still can’t sort out how that could be as I was never at school~~ever.~~I think I read that it’s called “grading on a curve.”
 ~~
But then you and I both know the sort of boy Hav~ad gins out these days~~
 ~~
 I’ve likewise held any number of silly little jobs~~and likewise run off from all of them~~lickedity~~spilt~~fast~~
 ~~
 Of late date, convalescent and in dotage, I’ve discovered writing and have a ball doing it but I’m informed tonight that I can neither write, be taken seriously or run for President as some have suggested as~~some say–and truly so~~if I ran I’d come a winner~as I haven’t any sort of hard act to follow there~~
 ~~
 All this, I think, is down to my having not “taken girls seriously”~~
 ~~
 I went to see Ellie Marie~~I always go to see Ellie Marie~although she doesn’t like it very much~~
 ~~
I said “Ellie Marie~~I’m astounded and~~I don’t astound”~~
 ~~
 “I’d never thought girls wanted to be taken as serious”~~
 ~~
 “I’d rather thought that girls wanted to be special.”~~
 ~~
 Ellie Marie takes great pains with me and subscribes to the maxim that “success in life is principally down to taking great pains with other people even if they are people~~perhaps especially if they are people~~you don’t much like”~~
 ~~
 Ellie Marie explained it all~~
 ~~
 “The principal trouble with you John Begg is that you know far, far too much about girls than any boy is ever supposed to know”~~
 ~~
 “Why is that such a problem~after all, I’ve studied them closely for many, many years~~I came back Summa~~I think~~in Girls”~~
  ~~
 “John Begg~you are the most clever writer and people get jealous of that but~~you’ve taken an annoying habit of taking pictures of girls in the altogether”~~
~~
 “In the what?”~~
 ~~
“In the altogether”~~
~~
 “You know, nudey pictures~you won’t be taken seriously by your audience if you persist in showing girls in the altogether.”~~
 ~~
 “Goddamnit Ellie, it’s a base lie~~I’ve never taken or sent out into the world  a single picture of girls in the altogether in my life~~it’s a base lie.”~~
~~

Girls are a scream–they use the expressions~~lingerie model, swimsuit model, soft core pornography and XXX hard-core pornography interchangeably~by which is meant there isn’t any difference between the one and the other one~~that is~~that they are all the same thing~~

~~

I on the other hand think that “if things are different~~well, they just cannot be the same”~~

 ~~
 “You simply can’t do it anymore, dear”~~
 ~~
 “Why not?”~~
 ~~
 “You’ve led a very sheltered and privileged life~~girls are now equal or something like that~~I mean if you’re going to have a go at the White House~~girls will take offense maybe”~~
 ~~
 “What?”~~
 ~~
“I’d make a great President”~~
 ~~
“That’d be different for sure~~How do you intend to do that?”
 ~~
“I’d do just 3 things as President~~
 ~~
Protect the people
Facilitate commerce 
And leave the people the hell alone~~
~~
 “That’s cute but you have to take girls seriously~~they insist upon that I’m afraid, dear–that is if you want to be taken seriously as a Presidential candidate.”
~~
 Taken seriously?~~do you know what is meant in my line when you hear that a Presidential candidate is “taken seriously.”~~
 ~~
 “No, what?”
 ~~
 “It means the Democrats know he’s a loser.”~~
 ~~
“So, you want to clown around as usual?”~~
 ~~
“A clown?~~I ask you~~What do we have in there now?”
 ~~
“Well, I know but girls are very touchy about this equality business these days~very touchy”~~
~~
 “Hang them all~~high~~I don’t give a toss for lesbian girls”~~
~~
“It’s not just lesbians anymore, John~~real girls think they’re equal to boys too~they passed a law about it, I think.”~~
~~
 “NO!!”~~
~~
Same thing for Negroes~~
~~
Leave OFF!!~~
~~~
Fags too~~and lesbians~~
~~ 
“Democrats~~they did all this~~I knew it~~I can smell them from here”~~
 ~~
 “Even some Republican girls want to be taken seriously and be equal or something like that~~to boys.”~~
 ~~
 “Balderdash, Ellie Marie, balderdash.”~~
~~
“Ellie Marie~~God’s children are not all equal~~that’s just the point~~Democrats cooked up that kettle of fish about everybody being equal~~they say that  everybody is equal~~only they’re not all equal~~don’t you remember your G&S~~”If everybody’s somebody~~than nobody’s anybody?”
 ~~
I stood up to have a think~~
 ~~
 “When people ask me where’d the time go~~I mean what have you done with yourself for 62 years, John Begg~~ I say to them~~
~~
 “I’VE BEEN THINKING“~~
 ~~
 “For 62 years?”~~
 ~~
 “Yes, Perhaps, longer.”
 ~~
Aristotle tells us the highest attainment of man is to spend his whole day~~THINKING~~
 ~~
 “Aristotle?”~~
 ~~
 “Yes, he was a teacher or something like that.  Rather well-known, I think.”~~
 ~~
 “I thought you’d detested school?”~~
 ~~
 “Oh, I DID~~Oh, yes, I DID.~~what the devil does school have to do with thinking or with Aristotle?”~~
 ~~
 Ellie Marie, as with most girls, has little time for intense concentration~~except for things she cares about~~which are very rarely the things I care about.  I could tell she was bored with our dialogue and I backed off except to say this~~~
 ~~
 I’d never noticed, not once, that girls wanted to be taken seriously~~I thought that girls wanted to be special~~or am I wrong about that?
 ~~
 All this story inspired~~can that be the right word~~yes, inspired~~ in a classical sense~~by a bit of silly badminton between myself and others respecting  my showing  girly slides of girls being in “the altogether, ” or as someone said~~”being childish by showing their succulent backsides”~~
 ~~
 I must say that I can’t think how Ellie Marie or any of the others in this dance have ever even heard the expression “In the altogether.”  It’s a very antique, and I think is, or at least, was~~a colloquial expression my stepmother and some of her girlfriends used to use~~but my step mother was A Goddamn GERMAN for Christ’s sake~~
 ~~
 Boy A Howdy, now!!~~
 ~~
Girls are so touchy about this that they pay me less than no mind when I say that these girls in my little article are shown looking~~not at their succulent bottoms but~~rather~~over their shoulders back into the past to the Golden Age of America~~the 1950s~~
 ~~
 We pick up the trail of these backsides here~~
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~
_69868778_624_veil
Mohammedan Girls dressed to conform to the new~~very strict dress code put down tonight for all Internet traffic~~
~~
The girls are looking back at a Golden past in America of the 1950’s that you have maybe forgotten, or never knew about, but that I never can forget. As an aside– Who the devil wants to be taken seriously–again–I am not a Democrat–I am a free white man who gets to smile and laugh and say just what I want just how I want to say it–many people want me to run because of my writing–most of which you haven’t looked at–and I thought it an OK idea for a lark–I’ve been encouraged to run all my life and now, in my dotage, I thought hey, now–who could not be a better act than the show now playing–but even little Ellie Marie is constantly line-editing my work with an eye to pleasing the thought police–so I suppose that the money lenders in the temple down here who shout aloud that we are allowed to consider Clinton or Rubio in 2016 and nobody else~~are likely correct as–everybody has bought into the double talk~~and you and Ellie Marie and Wendy and Danny-O will get to pretend that a race between dead 2 horses is a race worth going to see~~

The office seeks the GIRL~

cool-girl-girls-kiss-Favim.com-1009439

It’s a GIRL!!~~

~~

We must have a girl President!!~~

~~

Democrats remain mired~~seemingly forever~~in the early 1970s~~when this sort of thing was of some~~marginal interest~~at least to those who had nothing worthwhile else to entertain them~~grown ups ask~~

~~

If we simply must have one of these~~can’t we at least have a good-looking one~~please?~~

~~

American working Girls~~

We understand that American girls have left cookie baking behind to pursue more important commercial pastimes and that Democrats think~~that’s nifty~~

~~

Image

Republican girls still stay home in the kitchen but Democrats are convinced~~that’s just not nifty~~

~~

Living~~for now~~ in a world turned backside front~~Republicans are at their leisure to most fondly remember the 1950s~~but likewise need to have a look around and seek out the very best man for 2016~~

Image

Republican girls look back at the past~~most longingly~~but~~they are just not hip~~and so~~out into the world they must go to work and~~on reading the cover today of Mr. Luce’s antediluvian rag~~THE TIME MAGAZINE~~whoever gets beyond the cover of that?~~at the doctor’s office~~I shutter to think what awaits in 2016~~but I can offer a campaign ticket that might just take the sting of double-wide pantsuits in horrid colors and wretched fabrics~~out of our line of vision~~

~~

Image

A Republican Girl Presidential alternative looks back at America’s Golden Age~~

~~

Image

A current~~much talked about~~Vice Presidential possibility likewise looks back~~to the Golden Era~~when Democrats were viewed solely as comic distractions~~

~~

Image

A great number of possibilities look~~fetchingly~~back at us~~let’s not limit ourselves~~there are young, vibrant~~pretty alternatives to the shop-worn inevitability evinced by Mr. Luce~~

~~

Image

At Washington, District of Columbia~~a tiresome city of resume wavers~~politicians waddle about boasting of this or that~~in America~~real, live, girls have far, far better things to do to pass the day~~

~~

Image

As American politics has become so insufferably stupid that all it can concern itself with is the redressing of real~~or imagined~~social grievances long ago resolved~~by Republicans~~most citizens fail to call The New York Times or The Washington Post first thing the morning to discover what they are supposed to call Negroes this morning~~or to demand to know when we will be getting THE girl President selected for them by those antique publications that nobody reads~~wondering instead~~aren’t there quite a few very sweet girl candidates in the country who would arrest the attention undivided of all Americans for 4,8 or perhaps more years~~if we just were to seek them out~~

~~

Image

 Facts is Facts, kittens~~

The office seeks the GIRL~~

What American of red blood cell could fail to remember to call her “SIR?”~~

My Vanilla Presidency~

  • Image
    John Begg ~~Karen dear–don’t you fret–all of Washington shakes its collective head and says that Ellie Marie “is simply a Christian martyr–simply a Christian martyr–a Saint consecrated”–for her having to put up with my various–how shall I say– idiosyncrasies–ask Wendy–she is completely convinced that Ellie Marie is a Saint consecrated–I tell Ellie Marie’s fans that while I love Ellie Marie to death–none here–nor Wendy–has the power to consecrate Saints–and Ellie Marie–wise enough to laugh at life’s riddles–simply says “I don’t want to be a Christian Martyr or a Saint–not now at least–that would mean I’d be dead.”
    Image
  •  

    Karen– John Begg–Putting up with someone’s idiosyncrasies doesn’t mean you like them and lack of respect for another’s sensitivities erodes love . . .Saint or not, she deserves to be cherished and made to feel indespensible — not just suitable for the time being . . .sounds like you are the dominant personality, so it’s up to you to consider her feelings . . .
    Image
  • John Begg Domination?~~oh I don’t go in for that sort, my dear~~you and Wendy must be thinking of Jeff Smith~~people here want me to run for President–saying in my ear that the country needs saving~~and that I haven’t anything useful to do with my time~
     ~~
     You know–they say~~that I’ve a lot of free time on my hands~~so I ought to offer myself up as some sort of sacrificial lamb for slaughter~~
    Image
    I’m perplexed they would ask me~~in fact, between us~~I think it rather rude~~as that is such a tiresome job~~however as we say in England~~times are tough and needs must~~
    ~~
    And so~~I am being what is called vetted–and before being what is called vetted–I was asked my “sins”–and I said–I tell my sins to a priest–not to politicians seeking a President to save the Americans~
    Image
    But they insisted upon some sort of answer and I said~~
    Image
    “Well—by the standards of the day–which are very lax–my sins are pretty vanilla-the potential trouble is~
    Image
    I like vanilla a very great deal”

I never bet fillies when they’re in season~you see they’re distracted then~by a far higher calling~

 Image

Today, you see, the sole purpose of marrying for humans~~is to make babies~~there simply isn’t any other reason to take such a plunge~~you see that, now don’t you?
~~
Shared privately  –  1:19 PM
~~
John Begg ~~Well, now~~Danny boy–How can we tell if or no animals derive pleasure from sex–after all the girl animal is only receptive when she is in season so that suggests sex for at least the girl animal has only one purpose–to make babies–boy animals are always at the ready–but again that maybe down to instinct so that they are in the mood as the girl comes into season to accommodate her–and all her girlfriends–lucky bastards–mais, que sais-je?~~
~~
With humans it’s funny because I am old enough to remember when young kids were in a rush to marry to get regular sex and the Church taught that sex in marriage was solely to make babies–in the modern times–one certainly doesn’t have to marry to have sex, Jesus knows, so the only legitimate reason to get married in the modern-day is to make babies~~

"Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he's the only one who's sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~

To dress always as does a Prince~a dedication since wee childhood~

Image
Prince Ali Khan on 27 May 1949 married  Rita Hayworth already in the second month of carrying their subsequent daughter Yasmin~~
Image
Price Ali Khan~~man of many~~intense~~Passions~~
Dear fine young gentleman~~
 
It’s to do with night trousers~~
 
It is the high winter season and~~I’m so sorry~~but~~we must disagree as to evening clothes on one point~~at which our paths diverge~~
 
I always wear 1&3/4″ cuffs on my evening trousers–when I was very young I was at table fairly often with the Prince Ali Khan and he wore silk gray calf-length check socks and 1&3/4″ cuffs and full forward pleats~~and always a flower in his jacket~~with his evening clothes~~and His Day Grays as well~~I asked him the inches.~~
Image
The Playboy Prince Aly was related to many celebrities before meeting Rita Hayworth,
such as Gene Tierney, Maria Callas, or Yvonne De Carlo and was an avid horse
race investor creating the world famous Ispahan tournament. Rita’s marriage to
Aly Khan led to a daughter Yasmin and made world headlines.
I followed His lead with night trousers and many other habits~~as he was a Prince and as He was Italian~~as am I~~both from our mothers~~
 
Prince was a great sportsman and was always out on the town at Washington with Jackie Kennedy and her girlfriends~~we’d known Jack and his family for a long time~~and he never seemed to go out socially with Jackie–ever~~and this was a good bit before Jack was President~~
 
Prince Ali Khan was a fairly wild boy~~in particular as to girls~~ but very funny–and a professional racing jockey and an avid racing car driver~~a sport that proved out his undoing~~as he drove like a madman and while he had his mechanic in the car~~he insisted on taking the wheel~~banishing the mechanic to the back seat~~and died in a terrible crash at Paris.
 
Many tailors are startled that I wear cuffs at night~~once one said to me~~
 
“Sir~~it is not my place to offer advice to you..” 
 
I said “Then~~don’t.”  
 
Happy Christmas and New Year’s Day~~2014

Death in the Afternoon~~The end of Prince Ali Khan, 1960 a Paris~~

“One can grow very tired of gratitude”~

marlene-dietrich-young-smoke-photos1 (1)Marlene+Dietrich+Dietrich_portraitphotoPortrait of Marlene Dietrichmarlene

“She has the bearing of a man; the characters she plays love power and wear trousers. Marlene’s masculinity appeals to women and her sexuality to men.” ~~@Kenneth Tynan.

Marlene Dietrich Sitting at Pool and Smoking

Marlene Dietrich was not a pretty girl~~but she had a remarkably tight body~~truly tight~~particularly considering the indifference to exercise then so common to her sex~~likely it was the German in her~~yet she was far more masculine than I could ever hope, or want, to pull off.~~

  Image

She had a line in a movie in which she said “One can grow very tired of gratitude.”

Image

Today, somehow, those words came to me as very prescient of modern life~~

<nyt_text><nyt_correction_top>Deanna Durbin, who as a plucky child movie star with a sweet soprano voice charmed American audiences during the Depression and saved Universal Pictures from bankruptcy before she vanished from public view 64 years ago, has died, a fan club announced on Tuesday. She was 91.

Ms. Durbin with Franchot Tone in “His Butler’s Sister” (1943).

In a newsletter, the Deanna Durbin Societysaid Ms. Durbin died “a few days ago,” quoting her son, Peter H. David, who thanked her admirers for respecting her privacy. No other details were given.

Ms. Durbin had remained determinedly out of public view since 1949, when she retired to a village in France with her third husband.

From 1936 to 1942, Ms. Durbin was everyone’s intrepid kid sister or spunky daughter, a wholesome, radiant, can-do girl who in a series of wildly popular films was always fixing the problems of unhappy adults.

And as an instant Hollywood star with her very first movie, “Three Smart Girls,” she almost single-handedly fixed the problems of her fretting bosses at Universal, bringing them box-office gold.

In 1946, Ms. Durbin’s salary of $323,477 from Universal made her the second-highest-paid woman in America, just $5,000 behind Bette Davis.

Her own problems began when she outgrew the role that had brought her fame. Critics responded negatively to her attempts to be an adult on screen, as a prostitute in love with a killer in Robert Siodmak’s bleak film noir “Christmas Holiday” (1944) and as a debutante mixed up in a murder plot in “Lady on a Train” (1945.)

The child-star persona affected her personal life as well.

“When my first marriage failed, everyone said that I could never divorce. It would ruin the ‘image,’ ” she told Robert Shipman in Films and Filming magazine in 1983. “How could anybody really think that I was going to spend the rest of my life with a man I found I didn’t love, just for the sake of an ‘image’?”

The man was Vaughn Paul, an assistant director, whom she had married at 19 in 1941. The marriage lasted two years. Her second marriage, to Felix Jackson, the 43-year-old producer of several of her films, also ended in divorce, after the birth of a daughter.

The third marriage was a success: in 1950, at 28, she married Charles David, the 44-year-old French director of “Lady on a Train.” After starring in 21 feature films, she retired to a French farmhouse.

“I hated being in a goldfish bowl,” she said.

Edna Mae Durbin was born on Dec. 4, 1921, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and grew up in Southern California, where she studied singing. She was discovered by an MGM casting director searching Los Angeles singing schools for someone to portray the opera star Ernestine Schumann-Heink as a child.

Signed by the studio at 13, Ms. Durbin, who already possessed a mature coloratura soprano, soon appeared in a one-reel short, “Every Sunday,” with another recently signed 13-year-old, Judy Garland, who sang swing while Ms. Durbin sang classical music.

Her MGM career ended suddenly, however, when Schumann-Heink, who was to play herself as an adult in the movie about her life, died at 75 and the studio did not pick up Ms. Durbin’s option. Shortly afterward she moved to Universal, shepherded there by Rufus Le Maire, a former MGM executive who had switched his allegiance to the rival studio.

Ms. Durbin was quickly handed to Joe Pasternak, who produced her first 10 movies, and to Henry Koster, who directed six of them: “Three Smart Girls,” “One Hundred Men and a Girl,” “Three Smart Girls Grow Up,” “First Love,” “Spring Parade” and “It Started With Eve.”

In his autobiography, “Easy the Hard Way,” Mr. Pasternak — who would eventually move to MGM and build the careers of two other coloratura sopranos, Kathryn Grayson and Jane Powell — said that stardom was always “a matter of chemistry between the public and the player” and that no one could take credit for discovering Deanna Durbin.

“You can’t hide that kind of light under a bushel,” he wrote. “You just can’t, even if you try.”

Ms. Durbin, who was originally to have ninth billing in “Three Smart Girls,” became the movie’s star when studio executives saw the first rushes. About the same time, in 1936, she began singing on Eddie Cantor’s popular weekly radio program.

In 1938 there was a nationwide search to choose the young man who would give Ms. Durbin her first screen kiss in the movie “First Love.” (Robert Stack was the actor chosen.) She was given a special miniature 1938 Academy Award for her “significant contribution in bringing to the screen the spirit and personification of youth.”

In movie after movie Ms. Durbin’s character found a way to help the struggling grown-ups in her life: reuniting her divorced parents, persuading the conductor Leopold Stokowski to help her out-of-work musician father, cajoling a stranger into becoming her father for a day.

Many of the films were Depression fairy tales in which Ms. Durbin won over or defeated silly rich people with the help of butlers, cooks and chauffeurs, who often risked their jobs to aid her.

After moving to France in 1949 and settling outside Paris in the village of Neauphle-le-Château, Ms. Durbin devoted most of her time to keeping her home, cooking and raising her children. In addition to Peter, her son from her marriage to Mr. David, Ms. Durbin had a daughter, Jessica, from her second marriage. Mr. David died in 1999, a few months before their 50th wedding anniversary.

Mr. David once said that he and Ms. Durbin had made a deal that he would protect her “from spiders, mosquitoes and reporters.”

Ms. Durbin, who gave almost no interviews after she left Hollywood, did send reporters a letter in 1958 that read in part: “I was a typical 13-year-old American girl. The character I was forced into had little or nothing in common with myself — or with other youth of my generation, for that matter. I could never believe that my contemporaries were my fans. They may have been impressed with my ‘success.’ but my fans were the parents, many of whom could not cope with their own youngsters. They sort of adopted me as their ‘perfect’ daughter.”

In the letter, which was excerpted in some newspapers, she also wrote: “I was never happy making pictures. I’ve gained weight. I do my own shopping, bring up my two children and sing an hour every day.”
