(Julie Comments on Her New Singing Career)

 
 

       Six months ago, Julie London was a retired actress, divorced from Jack Webb and engaged solely in bringing up her daughters, Stacy and Lisa. Today she’s one of the hottest singers in the record and nightclub business with a shimmering, glimmering future ahead.

“Every time I see Ella Fitzgerald work,” she said, “I wonder what I’m doing in the same business.”

There are people who are delighted she’s in it. Especially those who see her poured into a tight white gown, with her long reddish hair streaming down in back, and clutching the microphone like it was a long-lost love. It’s a pretty sight. And she makes pretty sounds like her hit, “Cry Me A River.”
