Good Bye, Mitzi Gaynor by Verlyn Klinkenborg I was eleven, and it was a small town in north central Iowa, not far from the small Iowa town in which my family had been living. And Mitzi Gaynor—“Hollywood’s exciting Mitzi Gaynor”—you were there, on the well-­worn jacket of the soundtrack of South Pacific. I saw the way you turned your breasts (for you were barely clothed it seemed to me) in the embrace of Rosanno Brazzi. His mouth had a peculiar shape in that photograph, open, deliberate, unnatural.

I had so much to learn from them. 32 t h e be at les a r e h er e! I was spending a lot of time with them. George asked me when I got to London if I could take some pictures of him and Patti [Boyd]. And I said, “Sure,” so I went to visit him at his house and we took some pictures. ” So we went over to John’s house.

No, there I was standing next to my childhood friend so I knew it was me. I almost flipped out! You see, I never saw the original article in the Times. And here I was 43 years 17 days later! . My 15 minutes had arrived! I am your “screaming sister” on the left side of you (with camera) And I remember talking with you that very day, for I too was very much in love with George.
