  1. It doesn't surprise me about bogey and his side hobbies. It just makes me sad.

    Is anyone faithful?

  2. I know what you mean thingy; I wish it surprised me, but it didn't. I tried to think about who was probably faithful to their spouse, and I came up with Charles Boyer, Jimmy Stewart and Woody Strode. James Cagney claimed he was too, but I wonder.

  3. There's also Carl Betz, Ray Milland, Irene Dunne, Pat O'Brien, Dana Andrews, Joel McCrea, Rosalind Russell, Joan Leslie, Walter Brennan, and Fred MacMurray. I'm not 100% sure on all those (there is really no way of knowing for sure, of course!).

  4. Ah thanks Audrey--these are good ones. You're right, you can't be sure, but I wouldn't be surprised if all of these stars were faithful. I feel so much better now!
