Publicity still, 1950s, wearing her favorite diamond-studded music staff brooch. "One night at some sort of reception, Zinka, Blanche, and the latter’s then husband, Richard Metz, were chatting over cocktails. Metz couldn’t keep his eyes off Zinka’s extraordinary brooch,  a diamond-studded treble clef perched on a platinum music staff and pinned at the edge of her very décolleté gown.
He kept questioning her about it and leaning over to look at it more closely. Batting her eyelashes, in her most honeyed, coquettish tone, she asked at last, “Richard — vhich one of my treasures are you admiring?” [Blanche Thebom, as told to Bruce Burroughs]
