  • Notes

    • Helen Hayes discussed her recently-ended 1964 Broadway play, "The White House". Performed at Henry Miller's Theatre, the play ran for 23 total performances from 5/19/1964 to 6/6/1964. Of all the First Ladies she portrayed, Helen said she admired Abigail Adams the most. Helen also has an Honorary Doctorate, from Brandeis University. Her (Best Actress in a Leading Role) 1932 Oscar Award was briefly mentioned. She won it for 1931's "The Sin of Madelon Claudet." She joked that nobody would even remember it now. In a few years, she'll win a second Oscar (Best Actress in a Supporting Role) for 1970's "Airport." Bennett also mentions her play, "Dear Brutus" which opened on Broadway at the Empire Theatre on Dec 23, 1918! Of course, they joked that Bennett was the only other person old enough to remember it! Bennett was born in 1898 and Helen was born in 1900. - Suzanne (2004)
