Cinderella Jones and Rhapsody in Blue didn'pay off. Newspapers reported the demise of Buzz's fifth marriage. If Buzz courted the idea of remarriage, the timing couldn't have been worse. Gertrude was declining rapidly. On the evening of June 14, 1946, Nellie Gertrude Berkeley Enos silently died from cancer at the age of eighty-one. Frank Honda welcomed his grieving employer upon his return from the Ohio funeral. There was little in the way of distraction as Buzz did not have work to ease his troubled mind. He attempted suicide on July 17, but was luckily saved by Frank Honda. After receiving treatment in the Los Angeles General Hospital, he was placed in a psychiatric ward. He soon recovered and was released. Willing to beg for a new job, he asked the forgiveness of Jack Warner. He collaborated with Michael Curtiz, but later had another row with Jack Warner.
