NOTES

"In 1951 he appeared in some very unpleasant headlines over a romance with starlet Barbara Payton, when he was beaten senseless on September 14 by ex-boxer Tom Neal (an actor best remembered for "Detour" 1945), who claimed Payton was engaged to both of them. Extensive plastic surgery was required on Tone's face, but undaunted, he married her. They were divorced the following year."--James Robert Parish ("The MGM Stock Comapny")
