I should remember more, and I have a pretty good memory.
The Thin Man was a good break, because it was highly popular. I played a gigolo in it.
But by the time I was 40, everything was winding down. It started after the war. On the plus side, there was more more products and technology. But for me the nightlife was winding down, the glamour, the fun.
Well, you know what they say in Hollywood - the most important thing is being sincere, even if you have to fake it.
I know Raft did have some genuine affairs with actresses.
