Telegram, Ed Sullivan to Andrew Geer, 22 October 1954

"Ed Sullivan, the widely known newspaper columnist and television celebrity, sent a telegram to Reckless requesting she be on his show "Toast of the Town". At the time she received the message her ship was in a typhoon and she couldn't have cared less. The mere mention of toast was enough to make her ill."
