Buzz worked on four episodes of Big Town that aired in late 1954 and early 1955. About two weeks prior to the airing of Buzz's first episode of Big Town, he was arrested again on a charge of drunkenness. On January 23, 1958, the final judgment of divorce between Buzz and Marge Pemberton was granted in the California Superior Court. That same day, Buzz and Etta Judd were married. For the fifty-five-year-old bride it was her second marriage; it was her betrothed's sixth. For the first time in his life, Busby Berkeley married a woman without show business aspirations. Etta was broad-shouldered and big-boned and didn't resemble any of her predecessors. She was practical, protective, and, as Buzz could vouch, devoted. After having troubles with some producers, Buzz realized that he could no longer allow himself to be subjected to another producer's empty promises.
