At this time, the Omaha Community Playhouse made him an offer of a round-trip ticket and the opportunity to guest-star in any play he chose ([http://books.google.com/books?id=cXscbDlSt0cC&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_summary_r&cad=0#PPA7,M1 Sweeney p7]).  That is how, in Apr 1930, he is enumerated, living in the household of his parents back in Omaha as an unemployed actor, and single.  Kevin Sweeney [http://books.google.com/books?id=cXscbDlSt0cC&pg=PA174&dq=quigley+fonda&client=firefox-a&sig=ACfU3U39AcYrmvws1oFAbB65Dv1tHM7a5g#PPA171,M1 says that April 1930] he was back in Omaha in the play ''A Kiss for Cinderella''.  That Summer he reprised the role, this time opposite Margaret Sullavan for the University Players in West Falmouth, Mass.

Arrrrrrghhhh!  I hate it when this happens.  [http://www.newspaperarchive.com/PdfViewerTags.aspx?img=22968994&currentResult=1&src=search Here] on NewspaperArchive.com we see a page from the ''Syracuse Herald'' (Syracuse, New York), and newspaper archive has it indexed at 9 Jul 1930, page 31.  This is '''one''' of the pages I was using as evidence that Henry and Margaret had married earlier than reported.  OK.  Now, the first thing I notice is that the image of this page actually says "Page Sixteen", not page 31.  The date on the page is blurred '''just enough''' that it could be 1930 or 1936.  I'm starting to get a bad feeling here.  Slowly flipping back I notice something odd.  Every page, even-numbered in the index appears to say "1930", but every page odd-numbered in the index appears to say "1936"!  Gah!  Smacks forehead, NewspaperArchive has merged two different sets of pages into one run!  '''So''' apparently this announcement of a new film ''Reno in the Fall'' co-starring Henry Fonda opposite Margaret Sullavan, and calling him her "ex-husband" is supposed to be dated 9 Jul 1936.  '''So much''' for my great new revelation.
