In 1945, I was called to Hollywood by the U.S. Government to help with the war effort by conducting interviews with famous Hollywood personalities for the Voice of America which was broadcast throughout Italy on a weekly basis. I interviewed most of the major stars about their lives and movies. Around this same time I began my movie career in Gilda (1946) and as Mrs. Martini in It's a Wonderful Life (1946).
