Cohn decided to send an emissary to Rita to convince her of her folly and the wisdom of returning to her career. Virginia Van Upp was posted to undertake the delicated mission. She arrived to find the famous couple prisoners in their hotel, the air tense from arguments, both complaining bitterly.
“It’s your fault, you wanted to be a movie star,” Virginia told Rita. And to Aly, “It’s your fault, too; you’re not exactly John Doe.”
“Who is John Doe?” Aly demanded, starring at Rita. Miss Van Upp tried to explain the expression to him but he remained unconvinced that John Doe had not been one of Rita’s lovers.
When Rita asked to speak to her privately about her relationship with Aly, Van Upp, tactful and ever a friend to Rita, realised her mission was abortive. Yet Rita voiced unease :
“I Iove him but I’m worried.”
“What about?”
“It’s your fault.”
“Why?”
“Because you wrote Gilda. And every man I’ve known has fallen in love with Gilda - and wakened with me.”
