Trivia (8)

Mother Carol Grace (nee Marcus) later married Walter Matthau.

Her parents were married and divorced twice in eight years, the final break happening in 1952. Her father never remarried. Her mother married actor Walter Matthau, a union that lasted 41 years.

She wrote short stories that her father thought were quite good. She did not, however, pursue a literary career. She later worked as a film library archivist and in bookstores.
Played small parts on Broadway, off-Broadway, on TV and in film in an acting career that didn't go the distance.
