Too bad you only had TWO choices for Top Romance for Gene Markey. I had to vote for Joan Bennett because that was the romance that produced their only child. how do I know? That child was a daughter, Melinda - my mother. You should have had a third choice for top romance (that would have been the one I really would have voted for), the lady he would eventually settle down with - Lucielle Parker Wright.
