Trivia (3)

American Film Institute Catalog of Feature Films 1931-1940 mistakenly identifies June Brewster as one of the Brewster Twins; this is incorrect. Barbara Brewster and Gloria Brewster were the Brewster Twins.
Bred pedigree show dogs in addition to acting (source: "The Film Daily, Apr-Jun 1935").
A minor supporting actress of the 1930's, whose only claim to fame (or notoriety) was being married to Guy McAfee. McAfee was a former L.A. vice squad captain, turned proprietor of an illicit gambling den, the Clover Club on Sunset Strip, which was equipped with gaming tables that could be flipped over and hidden during raids. This did not, ultimately, stop a successful raid by the police. McAfee, with wife June in tow, duly left for Las Vegas, where he acquired the Pair-O-Dice Nightclub and Casino on Highway 91. He purchased several other lucrative properties during the 1940's: the Frontier Club, the Mandalay Lounge, the Pioneer Club, the SS Rex (which became Benny Binion's Horseshoe), and, most famously the Golden Nugget in 1946. At the time of his death fourteen years later, McAfee was considered one of the most successful operators in the history of America's gambling capital.
