Married on this day… In 1962: Jack Lemmon and Felicia Farr

In this new feature for 5 Star Wedding Directory, ‘Married on this Day’, we take inspiration from iconic weddings throughout history.

Today, 17th August, marks 53 years since the wedding of Hollywood mainstays, Jack Lemmon and Felicia Farr.

Farr and Lemmon were married in 1962, a second marriage for both of them. They had one child together, and each became step-parent to children from the other’s previous marriage. In the early 1960s, even for the rich and famous, that counted as a very modern marriage. They remained devoted to one another until Lemmon’s death in 2001.
