In 1962, Shirley MacLaine traveled to Russia as a good will ambassador and spent 53 hours speaking with Russian students about everything from politics to Liz Taylor. One exhausted student finally asked: "Is this lady what you call, in United States, a filibuster?"

[On another trip, to Bhutan, MacLaine tried to smuggle her native guide out of the country disguised as her chauffeur. When the man was discovered, and made his escape, MacLaine was held at gunpoint until he was recaptured.]
