Vincent Sherman Facts
Romanced many of his famous actresses, and he wrote about them in his 1996 autobiography, "Studio Affairs." Though both were married at the time, he and Bette Davis had an affair that began during the filming of Old Acquaintance (1943) and continued through Mr. Skeffington (1944) which was released the following year. His dalliance with Joan Crawford lasted through three movies, and another with Rita Hayworth happened during Affair in Trinidad (1952) after she had divorced Prince Aly Khan.

Had a son, a daughter, four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Actress Francine York was his companion the last nine years of his life.
