  1. I lived with Barbara, Corky Hale and my mother jazz singer Helen Merrill in the Parioli section of Rome, in the early 1960s. Barbara was a sweetheart and I loved making breakfast for her for fun! I was only about 10 or 11 years old but I had a huge crush on the adorable British “Black Sunday” vampire actress.
    Question. Do you know the exact street address where we lived? It was the same building where Liz Taylor lived with her sons, who I knew as well.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, since I’m writing an autobiography. Thanks! Alan
