     ‘Shortly after I finished Professional Sweetheart, my agent informed me that I was up for the leading lady role in a Universal film ‘Don’t Bet on Love’. The star of that movie was Lew Ayres, Lew Ayres! I could hardly believe it. Imagine I might be cast opposite my idol! Ever since I’d seen him in All Quite on the Western Front, I’d been nurturing a crush on him. It’s hard to believe that someone in the business can act like an ordinary schoolgirl, but it happens. I fell in love with Lew Ayres’s image on the screen and the dreamy aura of the teenager was still with me. I had built a romantic fantasy about a man I’d never met. I was truly smitten with Lew’s good looks and the smoldering glances he gave to the various females playing opposite him. Once I knew we’d be appearing together, I wanted to find out as much as possible about Lew Ayres and devoured all the fan magazines. Lew was newly divorced from actress Lola Lane and, according to one article ‘’sour’’ on women. I wondered why. I knew what it was like to go through a divorce, and despite the pain, I wasn’t sour on men. I only hoped the magazine was exaggerating – as they often did.’
