From her suite at the Ambassador Hotel, Paulette refused to answer any questions about Chaplin or even reveal her age (she's 26) in what she claimed was her very first interview. When asked what she plans to do in NY, she answered "breathe deeply" and read Wells' Anatomy Of Frustration. "Like Hollywood, the frustration part," she said. Given this impromptu trip to New York and rumors of a fight with Chaplin, one can't help but read between the lines of that response.
