Helen Gurley Brown wrote a book called I'm Wild Again, published around '98 or '99. In it she describes living in L.A. in the late '30s and through the war-- and once actually working for Dolores's escort service. I found this excerpt: http://books.google.com/books?id=4Cz...page&q&f=false

Btw, it turns out that Helen once lived at 2400 S. Hope, apparently on the grounds of Orthopaedic Hospital (her sister was a patient there). Remember the famous Longstreet Palms? I refer you to the estimable blog of Scott Shannon, who also appears here sometime: http://losangelespast.blogspot.com/2...-trees-in.html

Somewhere else on the web is a story that, after her bust for procuring and jailhouse campaign against Bowron for mayor, the indefatigable Dolores became a psychologist.
