I suspect you have given up checking for a reply, but in case you see this; I believe I have an answer to your question. Spencer Tracy and Joan Bennett both use the term "bezark" to refer to the other. The term was (apparently) slang and in common usage during the 1920s - 1940s and meant "an eccentric or unpleasant person" (female and male). The word is also used near the end of *Sailor’s Luck* (1933) directed by Raoul Walsh, in the scene James Dunn quarrels with girlfriend Sally Eilers, whom he suspects of infidelity, and says something that sounds like "All you bezarks are alike."
