And it followed that a boy and girl romance developed between Bebe and Harold Lloyd. He was her first ‘date’. By nature he was shy and it took him some time to pluck up the courage to ask Phyllis (Bebe’s mother) if he could take Bebe out. Phyllis was strict with Bebe as she was still underage. But Phyllis did agree that Harold could take her to movies and to dances, provided he brought her home ‘real early’.
Harold and Bebe were happy together and at one time very much in love. He asked her to marry him. He bought a diamond, had it made into a tie-pin, and if and when Bebe said ‘yes’, he would have it remade into an engagement ring. The diamond remained a tie-pin.

In the book, “Bebe and Ben”, (Robert Hale and Company, 1975), Daniels is quoted by author Jill Allgood about the early filmmaking exploits of the Rolin Film Company: “We all went out in cars, with Hal Roach in the leading car not knowing what we were going to shoot, and we worked out ideas on the way. When Hal found a location he liked, we stopped, the camera was set up, and we would decide on the scene and action.”
I need this book………..I just reserved it at the Hollywood library - yay! Apparently, it’s been out of print for some time, but there are a few copies available on Amazon, although they’re a bit pricey, if any of you want to check it out. :)
