Did You Know?
Sometimes my work as an actor presents a conflict with my ideals as a clergyman. I don't believe in the old saying that the end justifies the means, and no money that I can earn as an actor can accomplish so much good that I would feel justified in violating my ideals to earn it... If the question ever arises in a serious way, of course I would have to give up my acting.
Wife Kathryn Adams
, who was an actress when they met, retired from films after their 1942 marriage to raise a family of two sons and a daughter. She did return once, however, to co-star with Hugh in the film Blonde for a Day
(1946). They divorced in 1974.
