Thanks Dan ... had the first part but not the third part after it trails off ... thought the bit about Loganís attorney, Sam Haskell, former mayor of Knoxville might be of interest ... no help with your question, but interestingly in the book Eddy Waller is noted as Fraser's assistant director in 1936 ... maybe another liaison? ...

Early Hollywood Copywriter, author and publisher Audrey Hancock Brown Fraser was [supposedly] born in 1903. She wrote press books for movie studio releases and helped create the "Who-Dunnit" radio mysteries. She wrote and published books throughout her life. Her fourth husband was western film director and writer, Harry L. Fraser. In 1990 she edited and published "I Went That-A-Way," Harry's memoirs of his Hollywood career working with stars like John Wayne, Clara Bow, Rex Bell and Tex Ritter, father of John Ritter.
