A source (Book "Star Stats: Who's Whose in Hollywood" by Kenneth S. Marx. Price, Stern, Sloan Publishers, Inc., Los Angeles, 1979, ISBN 0-8431-0498-8) says that he was first married to Grace Mary Mather Smith, an actress, and they had a daughter born in 1929, Jennifer De Bujac. They were divorced some time in or before 1933. It is possible that Grace Mary Mather Smith is Grace Smith, an actress who did a few films in the late 1920s and early 1930s.
Dolores del Rio introduced him to David O. Selznick while he was manager of the Embassy Roof Club.
