Are Keefe and His Wife Separating?

Keefe Brasselle, Ray Anthony and Norma Jean Aldrich at the Ciro's

Keefe Brasselle
Is keeping those separation rumors quiet by taking his wife along with him on the road of personal appearances. Although “The Eddie Cantor Story” didn’t do much for Keefe, don’t count him out of movies. He’s in there pitching every minute of the day and with such persistence, luck is bound to fall his way.

Keefe Brasselle and Arlene DeMarco

Keefe Brasselle was married twice. First from December 18, 1942 until December 6, 1956 to Norma Jean Aldrich (which the above gossip refers to). Keefe was married to Arlene DeMarco of the DeMarco Sisters singers from December 23, 1956 to 1967.

It looks like band leader Ray Anthony, who was once married to Mamie Van Doren.

The lady sitting at the table is Norma Jean Aldrich and the man standing is not Cary Grant - it's the band leader who often was at Ciro's Ray Anthony. This is NOT a photo from Ciro's opening - that's the 're-do' interior you see of the way Ciro's looked in the early 50s when it was done over to look like a garden room.
