Not me, though. We’re in the middle of a heat wave and I’m miserable without golf and tennis. I’ll take a polar vortex any day. OK I can’t play golf or tennis then either, but at least I don’t sweat just sitting at my desk.
Playwright Arthur Miller liked ’em hot — women, that is. In 1956 he married sex symbol Marilyn Monroe, who would go on to make the movie “Some Like It Hot” in 1959.
Like many left-wing intellectuals (at least that’s what Walter Winchell called him), Miller dressed conventionally. Nothing makes a gentleman look distinguished quite like good clothes, glasses, a pipe, and a hot blonde wife.
When they married, Variety’s headline was “Egghead weds hourglass.” — CC
