Error corrections or clarifications

* She was nominated for a best supporting actress Oscar for The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone, but did not win, contrary to what The Americana Encyclopedia Annual 1982 states in her obituary. It was actually Rita Moreno who took the Academy Award home for her performance in West Side Story.

** Note that Lotte and Kurt actually divorced in the early 1930s, then remarried in New York City in 1937.

The following publications, in some past editions, have offered erroneous birth data on Lotte Lenya.
