Error correction or clarification
* A couple of sources erroneously report
Gene Fowler was one of Nunnally Johnson's
kids. This would have been an exceedingly
difficult task since Gene was actually older
than Johnson. Gene Fowler, Jr.,
on the other hand, was married to
Johnson's daughter Marjorie, making Gene, Jr.
The most in-depth of more than two dozen
sources consulted in preparing this profile,
was 1962's, The Young Man from Denver, by Will Fowler.
