____________________________________________________________

Lizanne acquired her stage surname "Truex" when she married Barry (Barrett Ernest) Truex, son of the stage, screen and television actor James Ernest Truex. The couple would eventually divorce and Lizanne then married the choreographer Earl (Irwin Baer) Barton.

There is a very nice biography of Lizanne on the Turner Classic Movies website. Here is an excerpt from that bio:

When asked who her inspirations were, she quickly cited her brother who is a Jesuit Priest and her early dance teacher, Mildred Lyons. She recalled that Mildred was the person in her life who gave Lizanne her focus and determination, at one time saying to her: "Do you want to dance or go to the School Prom?" Looking at her career, her dance did take her to multiple Proms all over the world and into the hearts of those who saw - and will continue to see her.

And here is another website.
