    Notes 
    • -
      In a February 4, 1959 article, the Houston Chronicle reported:  "W. Howard Lee's charge in a divorce suit from actress Hedy Lamarr that his actress wife was guilty of excesses and cruel treatment was denied by Mrs. Lee's attorney.
          In Lee's divorce petition, he said: "She was guilty of such excesses, cruel treatment and outrages as to seriously affect and endanger plaintiff's health and in rendering living together insupportable."
          Mrs. Lee, who has been living in Beverly Hills since the separation, could not be reached for comment."
