I've considered marriage, but each time I'm afraid I've had to
turn the lovely ladies down. When I was doing Love on a Rooftop
you wouldn't believe how flooded the studio was with marriage
proposals for me! It was amazing! None of these girls had ever
even met me. At first I had some "thanks, but no"
letters printed up to mail back to these girls, but I thought
better of it. Besides, I didn't want to hire a secretary to take
care of my love life. But those rejection letters were really
crazy, man. I listed all sorts of reasons for staying single,
so that none of the girls would think I was rejecting them personally.
Let's see if I can remember some. "I want to be a bachelor
because they are a dying class in America today and I feel obligated
to preserve it." (I think of bachelorhood as a class, and
all these young marriages are killing it.) "And because it's
fun, and because I'm too young to go." Those were some reasons.
In case you're wondering, the other bachelors were George Hamilton, Ron Harper, Dennis Cole, Lee Majors, Warren Beatty, Robert Vaughn, Adam West, Richard Chamberlain, Rock Hudson, Chris Connelly, and Hugh O'Brian.
