SHOWING DOROTHY LAMOUR 30 YEARS LATER, FLYING ROYAL AIR MAROC TO MOROCCO, WAS A NO-BRAINER. (BUT SHE HAD LOST HER ONCE PETITE FIGURE.)
In the '40s, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby went off with Dorothy Lamour on the Road to Morocco. Thirty years later, still vividly remembered, the famous trio's female star shows up for a return flight, clad in her trademark sarong. This time her destination is not the sandy Hollywood movie lot, but the for-real exotic land of Morocco. When we shot Ms. Lamour, she was still a stunning beauty, but her legs had lost their curvaceousness. So I substituted the gams of a youthful gymnast, hoping that somehow she wouldn't be embarrassed by my somewhat arrogant substitution. When I showed this Hope and Crosby sex object her new, trimmed-down, juiced-up figure, she barked, "That's a lousy shot of my legs!"
Vanity, thy name is woman.
