(November 28, 1943 - December 31, 1951) (child: John)
Sid Luft was once secretary to Eleanor Powell and he and Lynn met at the home of actor and radio announcer Bill Goodwin. Working as a test pilot for Douglas Aircraft, Luft fell for Lynn and eventually he took over management of her career, and her heart. They married on November, 26, 1943. Lynn had a very painful and traumatic year ahead. Becoming pregnant, and being advised to rest, she did so. Sadly, her only daughter, born August 15, 1945, died soon afterwards. This tragedy would remain with her always, and she still grieved many, many years later. There were problems with her marriage to Sid Luft, and his management of her career proved to be troubled. Instead of renegotiating when renewal of her contract came up, he influenced her not to re-sign. The couple reconciled, but later divorced on December 26, 1950.
