In the 1980's, I attended a convention somewhere in California
and I was honored to be among about 30 convention attendees
to be treated to dinner and later to a play. We had very
good seats, I think it was the 3rd or 4th row, in the orchestra.
The play was The Front Page, which was written by his father,
Charles MacArthur. His mother was Helen Hayes, if some are not
aware of that fact.
James played the part of Hildy and was excellent in the part. He
wore period era clothes, loose with wide legged, loose fitting pants.
Being up close to the stage we were able to see the actors and the
action very well. It was quite obvious that James was either going "commando", or had enough to do a bit (a lot, actually) of swinging
around in those period era pants!
He's a cutie alright, and even at a certain age, still is!
