I already touched on Howard Rushmore's suicide when writing in May about another tragic figure in the Confidential magazine case, Ronnie Quillan.
And as a bonus, courtesy of Steven Bibb, here's the famous Robert Mitchum "I'm a hamburger" story from Confidential, July 1955. Although Mitchum brought a $1-million suit against Confidential over this story, I cannot find any accounts in The Times reporting on the outcome.
