1[in 1976, on Bing Crosby] He stays in his room when he is working on a new number or planning a show. The casual air is deceptive. He is relaxed but not lazy.
2[on her marriage to Bing Crosby] He was a pretty cute kid, when it came to convincing a girl that what she really wanted was to stay home and to scrub floors. He didn't know that he was a male chauvinist pig, but he was!
