The grueling hours between court and set weighed heavily on Buzz. The legal expense, the pages of billing minutiae to the quarter hour, came due on the heels of Buzz's $95,000 settlement. Giesler's fees amounted to almost six figures—worth every penny to keep Buzz from losing his sanity and facing hard time for murder. It was the public perception of the name Busby Berkeley that changed. During the Varsity Show, Buzz began an affair with Carole Landis that later cooled off. During the casting of Gold Diggers in Paris, Buzz took notice of a beautiful young auditioner named Claire James. Flying in the face of convention, the forty-something Buzz and the teenage Claire began dating exclusively. After They Made Me A Criminal was released in January 1939, Buzz transferred to Loew's Incorporated.
