Classic Hollywood Relationships

I was flipping through Saturday’s Washington Post and came across an obituary for actress Evelyn Keyes.
In everything from comedies (The Seven Year Itch and Here Comes Mr. Jordan) to drama (Gone With the Wind), she parlayed the career into a gossip column with the LA Times.

Her wild personal life reflects the attitudes of Hollywood. She married many times but explained, “I was married sure, but those weren’t marriages, they were legalized love affairs.” She had these with John Huston, Charles Vidor and Artie Shaw. Meanwhile, she had affairs with Kirk Douglas, David Niven and Anthony Quinn.
