Note from askART as a correction to the Hughes biography
A correction was made to this biography, which originally stated that Pauline Karloff was the same person as another woman who, in fact, was Karloff's fourth wife, but never took the Karloff name. Boris Karloff married Pauline as wife number five after divorcing his fourth wife.
