Show Summary Details


Buzz decided to take an ambitious cross-country automobile trip with his mother. They would end up in New York, see old friends and colleagues, and take in a Broadway show or two. In April, Claire James instructed her lawyer to cancel the divorce action she had filed just two months before and sought an annulment at a later date. That same month, Buzz went to work for 20th Century Fox after they made an offer to MGM to “borrow him” for a one-picture deal. In early June, two months after filming began on The Gang's All Here, after the annulment was granted, she married twenty-four-year-old Lt. Ray Dorsey. In July, Jack Warner was back in Buzz's life, after negotiating a deal with MGM that included Joan Crawford.
