June Lang Facts
Her second marriage was to mobster Johnny Roselli. She fell hard and didn't know at the time that he was a Mafia boss (he had passed himself off as an aspiring movie producer). Her studio eventually tore up her contract when his real occupation came to light. Although she divorced Roselli when he ignored her pleas for him to go legit, her career never recovered. Ironically, Roselli did go legit for a time in the '50s when he was promoted to associate producer by producer Bryan Foy, an old friend, for Eagle-Lion Pictures.

According to Gordon Hunter, who wrote a lengthy article about June in the March 2009 issue of "Classic Images," June's film career lost all momentum in 1938 after Fox Studio mogul Darryl F. Zanuck sent her to England for filming. June felt threatened by the looming aspects of war in the country at the time and insisted on leaving for her safety. The studio informed her she would be terminated if she did. Nevertheless she and her mother returned to the U.S. and her contract was over. Her subsequent marriage to Mafia henchman Johnny Roselli in 1939 was the final nail in the career coffin.
