I Remember You
Lorraine and Ragnon

Lorraine’s husband and dance partner, Roy Ragnon, died in a plane crash during a WW II USO tour. Lorraine suffered very serious injuries from that same crash, and made an heroic comeback as a singer and comedienne, thus performing without her husband at the New York premier of Never Say Goodbye. This crash was depicted in the Susan Hayward film, With a Song in My Heart.

    And to complete the circle, „WIth a Song in My Heart“ was one of Robert Wagner‘s first movies – the same Robert Wagner who once hitched a ride with none other than our man Flynn on Sunset Boulevard.
