Very, very belated topical humor

The New York Daily News reports in its gossip column about a new book which reveals how Katharine Hepburn apparently liked the ladies. Besides getting busy with Greta Garbo, July Garland, and others:

Hepburn also allegedly had a sexual attachment to her close friend Irene Selznick, the daughter of Louis B. Mayer and wife of producer David O. Selznick. It is said that the two enjoyed breaking into Hollywood mansions as a lark - and were once caught by silent-screen star Ramon Novarro (later the murder victim of a pair of burglars).

Anyone else think those last two events are related? Picture the chain of events: You come home. You find two hot women having sex in your house. Maybe you start being a little lax about locking all the doors and windows after that? Lighting's never going to strike twice if you don't put up a lightning rod, after all.

Sorry, Francis, but I'm not sure Ramon Novarro would be interested in girl-on-girl action...

Someone else beat me to the same comment. Ramon was on the other side of the fence.

Whoops. A lot of teenage girls are going to be sad! "Retro Teen Beat" just had a pull-out Ramon Novarro poster.
