Alice and DL fave Paul Lynde were in "New Faces of 1952" on Broadway together. Their comic delivery styles were very similar-I believe Alice might have mentioned on some talk show that she made a conscious decision to imitate him.

Her husband, actor Felice Orlandi, was gay. I believe he may have appeared in some early Tennessee Williams play. Wouldn't be surprised if they were lovers. I read in some book a very long time ago, that Felice became a sort of "office manager/assistant" to Dr. Max Jacobson a/k/a "Dr. Feelgood" whose clientele included JFK and about 90 percent of Broadway and Hollywood, including Henry Fonda, Yul Brynner, etc.

Even DL fave Arlene Francis went to him for an injection when she lost her voice while doing a musical in summer stock. She claimed that after one of his "injections" (which turned out to be speed), she never sang and danced better in her life.

Don't remember which book it was in, but Jackie went to him shortly after JFK's death with a couple of Secret Service agents in tow, to ensure that he not reveal anything about JFK having seen him. I believe he was some kind of State or Federal investigation at the time. He had lost his practice and was pretty broke. He kinda intimated how broke he was and how he needed financial help for legal fees. Jackie promised to "make it worth his while", but when the time came, didn't give him a dime.

I think Felice ended up a real addict, dying pretty much broke and alone. I'm not certain if Alice and he were ever officially divorced, but I don't think they were still together when he died.

I don't think it's beyond the realm of possibility that she liked the ladies.
