Barbara Payton Facts
When Franchot Tone decided to divorce her, he had a private detective take pictures of her having sex with other men. He then sent the photos to all the major Hollywood studios, hoping they would ruin her career.

In 1951, while already engaged to Franchot Tone, she proposed marriage to Tom Neal. She allowed him to move into her apartment, which Tone was paying the rent for. She kicked him out when Tone returned from out of town. After this, she went back and forth publicly from being engaged to Neal to being engaged to Tone. Neal and Tone eventually got into a terrific brawl, resulting in Tone lying in a coma in the hospital for 18 hours. After being married to Tone for 53 days, she walked out on him and returned to Neal.

As a child, she was very athletic, especially enjoying wintertime activities like skiing, sledding, and ice skating.
