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. his son-in-law.


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.
