Julie Carter
born: 28 February 1913
Pueblo, Colorado,
United States of America
died: 12 March 1991
Los Angeles, California,
United States of America
(age 78)
American actress.

Her parents were Carl Canfield Freeman (b. 23 Jul 1891, Pueblo [or CO Springs], CO - d. 13 Oct 1939, L.A.) and Elsa Odessa Foyil (b. 2 Dec 1896, Round Rock, TX - d. 7 or 15 Jul 1973, L.A.), who had married on 27 Nov 1911 in Pueblo, CO.  They divorced between 1917 and 1920, and Mom remarried.
On 28 June 1935 in L.A., she married columnist Jimmy Starr.  Her name on the documents is "Glaydes [sic] Freeman, also known as Julie Carter."  They later divorced.

On 22 March 1932, she filed a $250,000 breach of promise suit against actor Leslie C. Fenton, who had five days earlier married actress Ann Dvorak.  It charged that Julie/Gladys was engaged to Leslie the previous October, and created the impression that they were married and that he basically deceived and betrayed her under repeated promises of marriage (including inducing her to live in a Hollywood apartment for several months).  A few months later she dropped the suit, apparently because of the possibility of damaging her own chances in her motion picture career.
This was discussed in Christina Rice's book Ann Dvorak: Hollywood's Forgotten Rebel. It gave me several good leads on her life after Hollywood: "She went on to have a rocky marriage with gossip columnist Jimmy Starr, appeared in a number of uncredited parts into the 1940s, attempted suicide in 1948, was briefly married to Robert Livingston in the early 1960s, and then faded in obscurity."
On 27 December 1963, in Clark County, Nevada, Julie Carter Starr married Robert E. Randall (Robert Livingston's real name was Robert Edgar Randall -- they were previously both in the 1929 Richard Dix film Redskin).  (Additionally, Livingston was married to Margaret Roach, Hal's daughter, from 1947 to 1951.)
