Trivia (1)

Hole supplemented his income as an employment claims assistant for the California Employment Development Department; the unemployment office, a la Hollywood. During the 50's, Hole worked in the Hollywood office, paying out unemployment checks to out-of-work rank-and-file.; the day-players. Hole recalled when - under the 'studio system', the studios kept tight control over a star's paychecks. In those days, one had to appear in-person to receive their unemployment check. Many Monday mornings, the line at the counter window was filled with stately men, many dressed in black uniforms with caps - they were chauffeurs . As each of these uniformed men got closer to the head of the line, Hole would dash outside to a waiting limo, a door would open, and out of the car, and into line would pop - amongst others - Cary Grant, Tyrone Power or Errol Flynn. The money was enough for a day-player to pay their rent, or it could pay for the prince & princesses of the silver screen to have lunch at such places as The (Brown) Derby, Romanoff's, and others.
