Ida Lupino: “My fondest dream is that when the war is over, my husband, Captain Louis Hayward, now somewhere in the Pacific, and I may slip away to some quiet rendezvous for a year—perhaps, two—just by ourselves. Ever since we were married we have looked forward to a leisurely honeymoon, but our picture careers never permitted it. Now I’m determined we shall have it. This separation has been cruel and we feel we are missing a lot of living. There are many thoughts and hopes to share before we get caught again in the drive we call daily life. Perhaps we shall compose music during this glorious ‘out of the world’ period. With our new emotional experiences, we should be able to turn out something really worth while.
“When our men return they will need a little time to readjust back to themselves. They can’t be expected to swing back to the old routine at once. I’ve spent many hours planning Louis’s homecoming and it shall be as happy as possible.”
