At night, the studio goes quiet and David, probably its only overnight resident, plays his music loud.
The living arraigment is convenient but highly unusual. Dani Greco comes to cook dinner for David at the studio apartment one night.
Their whirlwind romance has settled some and is replaced with a daily routine and a dose of reality.
His feelings on marriage post-divorce have soured ("the cliches don’t work....certainly the pursuit of the house with the white picket fence and kids being brought up in the same place has gone by the boards”).
with David Janssen's 3rd TV series "O'Hara United States Treasury" approved for production in the summer, David takes a trip to Washington D. where the pilot is shown to government officials and David receives an orientation from the Treasury Department.
The new Secretary of the Treasury John Connally and Janssen have previously met--they were in Africa together in 1967 on the same "American Sportsman" safari .
David and Rosemary attend the opening of the Del Mar racetrack season with friends the Joey Formans and Dani Greco (who comes without husband Buddy who is performing in Las Vegas).
The alcohol-fueled weekend ends badly and the couple splits.
Janssen later acknowledges this show as the only stinker series that he was in but that it had a plus side, "I go straight through Customs..." spends alot of time in Palm Springs to decompress from the rigors of episodic television, a pace he'd not experienced for 5 years.
And the type of star dressing room that he used to pose in front (like the one assigned to Tony Curtis when he was a flegling contact player) is now his own. The tabloids will soon report trouble in his relationship with Rosemary with David dating a "O'Hara" guest star, etc.
Where the turf meets the surf is where the sh** hits the fan....
It is also believed a young director on the Universal lot offers Janssen a part in his first TV movie.
The film is "Duel" and the director, Steven Spielberg. is a presenter with Suzanne Pleshette at the Emmy Awards.
When Bujold drops out shortly before production begins, the film is delayed and Janssen is no longer available.
