The rest of us were invited
to Rock Hudson's house...

for parties, which were always such fun.
Rock had a great sense of humor...
and he was warm
and wonderful to be around.

There was a party in his house
every night, which was terrific.

We all used to say,
"Where's Elizabeth? Where's Jimmy?"

Of course, they were out talking.
I don't think there was
a romance of any kind there.

I really don't.
But I think it was his way of saying:

"Hey, Rock,
I can take Elizabeth away from you.

"I'm the third character in the film,
and just like in the film...

"she's yours.
Well, off-screen, she's not yours.

"She has my attention."
Sunday afternoons were very special
for all of us...

'cause it was our only day off,
and we put in long hours on the film...

which we all, I know I was happy to do.
I think everybody else was, too.
But we looked forward to Sundays.
I always went to church on Sunday...

with two or three other members
of the cast...

and part of the crew.
Afterwards, everybody would come
to Withers USO at night...

but we'd first go to the country club,
because there was a lovely pool there...

and it was cool.
We'd play water polo.
They had these big, old,
what do you call them? lnner tubes!

For old-fashioned tires, you know?
The boys would get them, Rock especially.
He would have a hoot and holler of a time,
where he'd get the two big, round things...

and then everyone would have
to dive off the board to get through there.

Dennis did it every time,
usually two at a time.

He was a very good swimmer.
He had a lot of fun with us there.
We all had a good time
at the country club.

It was the only pool anywhere around.
It was greatly appreciated by all of us.
