Quarrel forgotten

Here’s a publicity photo from the September 8 1932 edition of the Toronto Daily Star, featuring singer Rudy Vallée and his wife, who were now reconciled:

Vallée and his wife, Fay Webb, were not reconciled for long, as they separated in 1933. Vallée’s Wikipedia page states that, during the divorce proceedings, Ms. Webb claimed that “Vallée is possessed of a violent, vicious, and ungovernable temper, and given to the use of blasphemy and the use of intemperate, vile, and vituperative language.”

The two were divorced in 1936, and Ms. Webb passed away shortly afterwards from complications following stomach surgery. Vallée married two more times; his final marriage, to Eleanor Norris, lasted from 1949 until his death in 1986.
