While conversing with George Bernard Shaw and his wife one day, the writer Patrick Mahony asked Mrs. Shaw how she had dealt with her husband's innumerable, and often persistent, female admirers.

"After we were married," she began, "there was an actress who pursued my husband. She threatened suicide if she were not allowed to see him." Shaw, of course, had denied her the privilege. "And did she die of a broken heart?" Mahony asked. "Yes, she did," Shaw's wife replied. "Fifty years later."
