Where the Boys Are
 

11/6/74: After an appearance at the Westbury Music Fair in New York, she was raped at knifepoint at the Howard Johnson Motel where she was staying. She subsequently sued the hotel chain for failing to provide adequate security when she learned that a year after the rape occurred, the broken lock to her former room had never been repaired. She was awarded a reported $3 million.

 

She has been trying to promote a possible follow-up movie to her 1960s hit Where the Boys Are (1960) since the early 1980s titled "Where The Men Are".

 

[regarding Dick Clark playing "Who`s Sorry Now" on "Bandstand" (1952)] He continued playing it until it sold a million. Without Dick Clark I wouldn`t have stayed in show business. I was ready to go back to school to study medicine.

 

One day in 1960 I was going through my collection of Al Jolson and Judy Garland records, and I played Al`s "Are You Lonesome Tonight". I said, "Daddy, come listen to this. I could make it a No. 1 song". He agreed and I called Don Costa in to do the arrangement. I said, "I`m more excited about recording this song than anything I`ve ever cut." We were in the car on our way to New York when the radio played [Elvis Presley`s] "new" single, "Are You Lonesome Tonight?". Can you believe that? I was literally on my way to the studio to record it. How do you like that? Elvis even did the recitation part just like Al Jolson did.
