Adrienne Ames Adrienne Ames was never married to William Scott "Jack" Elam. She had 3 husbands; Bruce Cabot (31 October 1933 - 6 April 1937) (divorced) Stephen Ames (21 August 1929 - 30 October 1933) (divorced) Derward Dumont Truax (1925 - 1928) (divorced) (1 child). Her Hollywood career lasted about 10 years. From 1929 to 1940. Jack Elam was just 20 years old in 1940. In 1931 she married actor Bruce Cabot after leaving her second husband, a rich New York City stockbroker, but that marriage only lasted six years. In her divorce she told the court that the main reason she left him was that he was a violent, uncontrollable drunk. In 1938 the pair appeared before a US Tax Appeals Board to explain why she wrote off more than $9000 in wardrobe and jewelry on her 1934 tax form, which she claimed was necessary for "professional reasons" (as was her maid). She claimed that her "daily expenses" included flowers, massages, taxis and beauty work. There is no documentation of her being married to Jack and he had 2 wives that are documented in California during the time she is documented in New York City. Please remove her as Jack Elam's Spouse. Thank You, Claudia Pawson Goodman
Betty Ross Clarke Memorial I wanted to point out that the memorial you created for Betty Ross Clarke (#8757526) is not actually the gravesite for Betty Ross Clarke, actress. The correct memorial for Betty Ross Clarke, actress, is #85366875. She was interred in Forest Lawn in 1970. I recommend that the bio and photo on your memorial for Betty Ross Clarke be removed in order to prevent future confusion on this point. Thanks.
Ben Alexander, #8711971 Ben Alexander played Joe Friday's partner, Frank Smith, on the Draget TV series and co-wrote 6 episodes between 1952 and 1959. He also acted in other TV programs into the 1950s. Also,the cemetery office on Maui where he is shown as buried has no record of his buial there.
