dreammanFrom TV Stage, December 1954:

Cover and table of contents say “Betty White’s Dream Man.”  The article itself says “Betty White: Call Me Wholesome!”  Go figure.  Don’t you just love the font of Call Me Wholesome?

Interesting discussion of Betty’s four female groupies and how she used “some current jive talk.”  Whatever that was.  When I think jive, I think Barbara Billingsley in Airplane. 

It would also be interesting to hunt down that column that was so brutal.  Wonder what it said that left her “crushed for days?”

It’s a rather poignant to hear her speak of what she wanted at that point in a mate and how much it sounds like Allen.

Favorite line in the article?  “Meantime, Betty isn’t lookin’ or chasin'”
