Personal Quote:

In those days - it seems impossible now - nice girls didn't go to bed with people before they were married. I had been brought up by my British father. You just didn't do that. You did not sleep with them or live with them.

Trivia:

Lina Basquette claimed to have chosen the name Marjorie for her half-sister Marge Champion after the popular song 'Margie' by Con Conrad and J. Russel Robinson. See more »
