Corinne Griffith Facts
The film version of her best-selling memoir 'Papa's Delicate Condition' misspelled her name as "Corrine Griffith" in the credits. Griffith was not fond of the film and had unsuccessfully campaigned for Fred Astaire to play her father and was disappointed with the choice of Jackie Gleason.

Made headlines in 1965 with her request for an annulment from actor Danny Scholl, almost thirty years her junior, and her claim she was not the Corinne Griffith of the silent film era. Although former associates denied her claim of being a different woman, she was granted the annulment 33 days after the marriage.

Her parents were John Lewis Griffin and Ambolyn (Ghio) Griffin.
