Teledate with Marianne Faithfull

Sylvia Stephens, Fabulous, 12 December 1964

When Marianne Faithfull rang me up, we talked at first about the things all girls talk about when they natter on the 'phone. Then I asked the question that took the conversation into deeper channels and I didn't have to ask her to speak up any more, because I was really listening, listening hard, to what she was saying. And I was thinking "Yes it's fun to be famous, great to be in show business! But not all the time, thanks."
