|Photo of Franchot and Dolores I found on Pinterest. I do not know the origin of this photo.|
Apparently, Dolores and Franchot were married for two years before the press found out. In an Associated Press article dated March 21, 1958, Franchot confirmed that he had married Dolores in Canada in 1956. Only a year after admitting they were married, Franchot and Dolores were divorced in Mexico. As with Joan Crawford, Dolores appeared to remain friendly with Franchot after the divorce. According to various news reports at the time, Dolores was even seen on dates with her estranged husband in the weeks following their divorce. Because they were both incredibly private about their relationship, I have not tracked down much in the way of photographs or details about their marriage.
Dolores went on to act in feature films and some television movies until the 1980s. As far as I know, she is alive and well today.
