Polly said she had made up her mind not to like the big star DD- however, she was wrong and like us all, fell hook line and sinker for a wonderful warm immensely talented down to earth superstar.

DD's and Etting's lives had several things in common: Both of German ancestry; both blue-eyed blondes from the Midwestern U.S. (Etting from Nebraska); each had an absentee father; both sang in nightclubs in their early careers; each had a very controlling husband; both had recording contracts with Columbia; each hosted her own radio program; and both received stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (Etting has one, DD two).

And although Marty adopted him, which he didn't really need to do, it sounds like he didn't really love him, as we understand 'the concept' today.
