NOTES

Gig Young only used the names "Byron Barr" and "Bryant Fleming" in a handful of bit roles during his earliest period at Warner Brothers. From 1942 on he was known as "Gig Young". He did this partly to avoid being confused with another actor starting out in Hollywood named Byron Barr, who kept the name and racked up around 20 credits in Hollywood features between 1942 and the early 1950s. This Byron Barr played supporting roles and is perhaps best remembered as the hot-headed Nino Zachette, the boyfriend nearly framed for murder, in Billy Wilder's film noir classic, "Double Indemnity" (1944).
