Ray Anthony Party

August 3, 1952 (Hollywood, California)
(Leave your comments, please)

       Big Band leader Ray Anthony recorded a song, "Marilyn," written by Ervin Drake and Jimmy Shirl. Marilyn attended a party thrown by her studio at bandleader Anthony's home, at which, coached by Mickey Rooney, Marilyn played the drums.

        A helicopter clattered to earth beside the Hollywood swimming pool of bandleader Ray Anthony. The downdraft swept chairs and tables into the water, ruining the effect of thousands of floating gardenias. Marilyn descended from the helicopter in a flaming red dress that offended everyone except the photographers. She was there for a ceremony so tasteless that it appalled even the public relations man who organised it - of a song called "Marilyn"



************* My Marilyn *************

An angel in lace,
A fabulous face,
That's no exaggeration,
That's my Marilyn.

No gal, I believe,
Beginning with Eve,
Could weave a fascination
like my Marilyn.

She made me a poet,
Thinking up romantic themes,
Though she may not know it,
she's all mine in my dreams!

I've planned everything,
The church and the ring,
The one who doesn't know it yet
Is Marilyn.

She hasn't said "Yes"
I have to confess:
I haven't kissed, or even met
My Marilyn.

But if luck is with me
She'll be my bride forevermore;
I'll be marryin', carryin' Marilyn through my door!
