Dec. 28, 1940: Stellar Routine --  She goes to the Brown Derby for "luncheon," then sits and uses the telephone for hours, depriving hungry people of a booth ... She changes the color of her hair from a nice brown to a carroty pink ... She announces that "this marriage is the real thing" -- and starts calling her lawyer before the rice has been swept off the church steps ... She tells the loyal fan club that helped boost her to success that "her studio has requested that she not have a fan club" ... Her destitute father (and sometimes her mother) must sue her for support ... She refuses to date anyone less important than a leading man or associate producer, Jimmie Fidler says.
