Check out this wonderful blog post at Vienna's Classic Hollywood! It says: "Victoria Mature, Alan K. Rode
…………I enjoyed on You Tube the 2018 interview Alan K. Rode had with Victor Mature’s only child, Victoria .
Victoria’ s mother, Loretta Sebena, was Victor’s 5th wife. Married in 1974, Victor and Loretta remained together until his death ....
Victoria was born in 1975. Her mother was an opera singer and Victoria is a trained singer too – and nice to hear her sing.
Victor Mature, Loretta Sebena.
Victor was good friends with Jim Backus ( from childhood days.)
Victor virtually retired from movies in his late 40’s and was happy to enjoy his family, friends and golf.
There’s a good website devoted to Victor – http://www.victormature.net"
