The actress who, one night during the Broadway run of William Inge’s “Bus Stop,” answered a ringing backstage telephone. On the other end was Ben Gazzara. He wanted Kim Stanley. He got Elaine. “He took me to Downey’s Steak House [1950s actors’ hangout, Eighth Avenue and 44th Street] and then took me to my apartment on 52nd Street, and stayed two years.” Until, in Rome, with Gazzara proposing marriage, her eye fell on a beautifully tall, handsome male in a tuxedo coming down a flight of stairs in the Grand Hotel. His name was Rock Hudson. “Arrivederci, Ben . . . And we all know what a bum decision THAT turned out to be.”
