Polly Bergen and Oil Of The Turtle
A photographer and I met at her house to take photos of her. She rolled out a clothes rack of dresses and asked me to choose one for her to wear. I wasn't the most fashion conscious person but I managed to choose an appropriate dress. I don't remember anything else about the shoot or the dress or her house. It was a long time ago!!!
Another time I picked up some giant stuffed turtles from a taxidermist to take to Griffith park to photograph them in a stream for an ad or brochure. I was driving down the Golden State freeway with them in the back of my V.W. convertible. It took me a moment to figure out why people were pointing and staring at me.
I researched Polly Bergen to see If any of these ads or brochures were listed anywhere and found that she wrote a book in 1977 called "I'd love to but what would I wear". She should have called me.
