March 16, 1927
Clarence and Ona Brown were married in 1922, but now Ona wants a divorce. â€œWhen I married him,â€Â said Mrs. Brown, while weeping bitterly during her testimony before Judge Summerfield, â€œhe was a second-rate assistant director, and I made a director out of him. That cost me my home, for he got to thinking so well of himself he attempted to boss the house. He went nearly a year without even speaking to me.â€Â
(She may have a point; see this page under "salary.")
Ona’s testimony was neither denied nor contested, and she won her decree.
Think of that the next time you watch "Garbo’s favorite director".
