Wife Sues ‘Lounge Lizard’
“Papa’s Return,” by Clare Briggs.
|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.
