My Scrapbook Memories of Dark Shadows
by Kathryn Leigh Scott, Pomgranate Press, 1986
p. 37
Roger Davis showed up one afternoon with his new girl friend, a nineteen-year-old Texas beauty named Ellen. She'd arrived in Manhattan only weeks before to embark on a modeling career and eagerly showed us her portfolio. Her beauty was staggering--I've never since met anyone quite so lovely--and we happily assured Roger that Ellen, who used the professional name, Jaclyn Smith, had a good chance of making it as a model. As the romance blossomed, she visited the studio frequently and soon Roger announced their engagement.
