Trivia:

Her marriage to John Osborne was a tempestuous one, and ended in considerable acrimony. Osborne let it be known that he had given her the nickname "Adolf", and continued to be vituperative about her long after her suicide - something which made him very unpopular. However, he was very friendly, right up to his own death, with her first husband, Willis Hall. See more »
