I liked Tom a lot. He was a drunken, lovable ol’ Teddy Bear and it was sad to learn that over the years he had used Mom’s money for so many bad investments that three years after leaving MGM she was not only broke but seriously in debt. Mom and Tom were a kind of an arrangement. After all the men in her life I don’t know what she saw in him. Emotional security, I would imagine. For one thing he bored her to death and they drank themselves into oblivion. She was going to AA, but shortly gave it up. After separating in the early 50’s they finally divorced in 1955.
