Don't Confuse Hutton Heiress With Actress

May 30, 1999

Barbara Hutton was not an actress ("Hot Property," May 16). She was the Woolworth heiress and was worth $80 million to $100 million in 1935. When she and actor Cary Grant married, the newspaper headline read "Cash and Cary Married."

You were no doubt thinking of Betty Hutton, the actress who starred in many of Hollywood's big musicals. She also starred in Cecil B. DeMille's "The Greatest Show on Earth."
