A newspaperman, whose sweetheart ran away with an actor.
So I became a newspaperman. I hated to do it but I couldn't find honest employment.
When I was in the Soviet Union recently I was being interviewed by a newspaperman and he said, "Which dancers influenced you the most?" and I said, "Oh, well, Fred Astaire." He looked very surprised and shocked and I said, "What's the matter?" He said, "Well, Mr. Balanchine just said the same thing."
