“I remember her coming out of the club on 52nd street. Her limousine didn’t arrive. She’d always have a small pocket of fans. The doorman said, ‘Well, Miss Crawford, should I get you a cab?’ ‘Yes,’ she said. The cab arrived. She got in the cab and the first thing she did after the door closed was she’d turn on the light inside the cab and then she said to the driver [motions]… so that her fans could see almost like the queen in the carriage going off, the light on in the back. She loved the light. She loved the attention.”
