Dorothy Dandridge stretching in preparation for her Porgy and Bess role with Walter Saxer, in the January 22, 1959 issue of Jet. Saxer was a Swiss-born personal trainer whose Hollywood clientele included Ingrid Bergman and Jennifer Jones. In 1948, the legendary gossip columnist Hedda Hopper reported that Saxer was hired by Elizabeth Arden as the Physical Director of her Beverly Hills location with plans to put his “rhythmic exercises” on television. I need to pay a visit to the Paley Center to see if that ever happened. I also need to stop by and see their Bill Cosby tribute before it closes.
