Jan. 21, 1920: Stanley Carr was “just an ordinary lounge lizard,” Dora Monte testifies in a hearing to have his marriage annulled. “He had absolutely no ambition except to have a good time. He is an expert fox trotter. When he wants anything he is nice but having got it, he can be mean, nasty and selfish when aroused.”

Carr, who had a guardian appointed for him because he was a minor, also likes to  take out “wild women,” Monte says.
