Turning To Stone


January 10, 1953

[With] the young duke of Kent and his sisters, taken to see a famous illusionist in a London music hall.  The number ends with some nudity, and the nany doesn’t know what to do.  As they leave she ventures to ask, ‘How did Your Highness enjoy the performance?’  ‘I’m scared.’  ‘Why, Your Highness?’  ‘Mama told me if I looked at naked women I’d turn to stone – and it’s starting.’

                                                                                                 Jean Cocteau (I&AT)
