HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Aug. 12, 1943 – Another Hollywood marriage had gone on the rocks today as Mrs. Shelby Payne Fowley won an uncontested divorce from Screen Actor Douglas Fowley.
Mrs. Fowley, former socialite from Portland, Ore., and daughter of a lumber king, testified that Fowley “struck her several times, once right on the jaw.” She was awarded $300 monthly alimony for support of herself and a son, Kim, 4.
Following their marriage in 1938, Mrs. Fowley has been appearing in pictures under the name of Shelby Payne.
