The wedding of Broadway singer Ethel Merman and Oscar winning actor Ernest 
Borgnine is one of the shortest in Hollywood history. The marriage began falling 
apart on their honeymoon and it was soon dissolved after 32 days.

Merman, who never again married, devoted a chapter of her autobiography to
the Borgnine marriage: It consisted of one blank page.
