Who can be romantically linked to Debbie Reynolds...and how closely?
In 1975, she sold the Beverly Hills mansion that she had lived in with Harry Karl. The house was reputed to be worth over $1,000,000. The buyer was Jim Randall, an industrialist who made aircraft rivets. When he married actress Marisa Berenson, the wedding was held in the redecorated home and his best man was his friend George Hamilton.
Considers herself a "movie-oholic" and has an extensive collection of memorabilia, with over 4,000 costumes from the silent screen period to the 1970s. She has been known to gather posters from her collection of 3,000 and drive to homes of actor pals for autographs. In the 1990s she turned her collection into a Las Vegas movie museum, but had to shut it down in 1997 because of financial problems. Recently she has looked into the possibility of opening up a hall of fame museum in Hollywood near Grauman`s Chinese Theatre.

I wanted to get that sense of peace and even boredom that comes with long familiarity.
