Five Wed­dings

My Weekly - - Nostalgia -

Cary’s first mar­riage was to Vir­ginia Cher­rill in 1934 but she left a few months later and there fol­lowed a bit­ter di­vorce case. In 1942, he mar­ried Bar­bara Hut­ton, one of the wealth­i­est women in the world, heiress to the Wool­worth em­pire. When they di­vorced in 1945, Cary re­fused any fi­nan­cial set­tle­ment as he didn’t want to be ac­cused of mar­ry­ing for money. Wife num­ber three was Betsy Drake, co-star in two of his films, and this mar­riage lasted for 13 years, un­til 1962. His fourth mar­riage was in 1965 to Dyan Can­non, who give birth to their daugh­ter, Jennifer, the fol­low­ing year. They di­vorced af­ter only three years. Cary did not marry again un­til 1981, when he wed Bar­bara Har­ris, to whom he re­mained hap­pily mar­ried un­til his death in 1986.

“My for­mula for liv­ing is quite sim­ple. I get up in the morn­ing and I go to bed at night. In be­tween, I oc­cupy my­self as best I can.”
