He met Cary Grant in 1932, they soon rented a beach house together in Malibu, not unusual for the time, (Errol Flynn and David Niven shared a house too). But there still remains speculation whether their relationship was romantic?

"An ambitious actor, Lester Blane, previously rejected as 'not handsome' enough for the lead in a new play by millionaire Myra Hudson, he 'accidentally' meets her on a train for San Francisco, and sweeps her off her feet. Smitten by his charms, she marries him."

"After their marriage, quite unintentionally, Myra records a conversation between Lester and his lover Irene, as they plot to murder her because Lester thinks her new will leaves him nothing. They have only a weekend to kill her, before her new will is notarised."
#GloriaGrahame "Myra concocts a plan to kill Lester and blame Irene, with complex timing—to assure herself is an alibi— she she dresses like Irene. Lester finds out she's knows their plan, and he chases her in his car through the streets of San Francisco."
