  • Description

    After a 16-year courtship, Jimmy Durante - 67-year-old film comedian - was married Dec 14 to Miss Margaret Little, 40, a red-haired former actress, at the "Actor's Chapel", St.Malachy's Roman Catholic Church, New York.

    Durante and Margaret started their courtship in 1944, the year after the death of his first wife, Jeanne Olson. Their engagement was announced in 1956, at which time Jimmy said they would be married "next year". "Next year" finally arrived December 14, 1960.

    Jimmy - famous for his long nose and throaty voice - said, in trying to explain how he finally married: "I guess it was her perseverance and her determination, and a lot of intrigue."
