Hollywood's Real Story
Has Not Reached Sereen
Pageantry of the Movie Colony, With Its Disap
pointments and Triumphs, Will Make a Story of
Λ Contrasts Unlike Late Novels and Pictures.
·
By Mollie Merrick.
Hollywood, caiir. September
24.—When the real story of
Hollywood is written it will not
be "once In a lifetime"—such
things as the Kaufman-Hart
satire written out of New York have
little to do with the real story of the
cinema colony. Nor will the real story
of Hollywood have anything to do with
such froth as "The Truth About Hol
lywood" or "Make Me a Star" or the
Constance Bennett-Neil Hamilton story
of the starlet and the director, and the
polo player from Santa Barbara, very
r„ay and merry and falsely tragic in
epots.
The real story of Hollywood will be a
pretty grim affair. It may some day be
written by some one far from Holly
wood, some one in a reminiscent mood,
some one looking back on the sordid
pageantry cf a colony which must be
just that because of circumstance. Every
market place has its tragedy, if you
care to view the marketeers that way.
Those who fail to sell their wares in
variably disappoint themselves, often
disappoint others, and sometimes be
come too discouraged to continue mar
keting.
Within a short period of time—less
than a month—two people. Paul Bern,
a prominent supervisor and author, and
Peg Entwhistle. chose to leave life
rather than to live it. The man. less
than three months married to the most
widely heralded platinum star. Jean
Harlow, left a tangled life, wry little
money despite his enormous salary over
« period of many years, and a world of
bleak questioning in the hearts of his I
many friends.
The girl who could not get what we 1
call a good "break" here in Hollywood,
although she had achieved fame in New
York and London—a pretty girl of 24,
talented, possessed of charm and appar
ently a person not without some forti
tude—leaped to her death from the top j
of the giant electric sign "Hollywood- j
land," which, high on the hills above ι
the motion picture colony, may be j
glimpsed against the night sky from al- ;
most every part of the cinema city.
Attempted suicides in Hollywood are
nothing unusual. There is something
sa grim about failure and shabbiness
and aloneness in this glittering hard,
ormined town that it becomes intensi
fied by contrast. It is bitter to walk
along the boulevard with holes In your
shoes when almost every car that passes
is a super-something done in gay col
ors and chromiumed to the last degree.
Man's misery increases in proportion to
man's luxury.
In Peg Entwhlstle's case there seemed
to be no romantic complication—or. at
least, none has been brought to light.
But there seemed to be no shattered
romance in the story of a young writer,
who. a year or so back, decided to end
it all. Apparently she led a gay and
rarefree existence among the colonites,
her rosy enameled nails were flashing
happily wherever good healths were be
ing drunk. Then financial things went
against her for a while. It requires
money to play with stars who seldom
wear the seme sports clothes more than
the third time.
The girl in question withdrew from
much ot the gayety and the brief
memoriei'. playfellows of former days
didn't seem to notice that she wasn't

ι there. If the.v mlseed her, they'd say,
"Let's call up tomorrow and see where
she is." Then tomorrow came that 8
a.m. studio call, or the new part, or
retakes on the old picture, or fittings
for the studio dressmaker, or pictures
to be token in the studio photograph
gallery. Any number of things may
crop up in an actress' morning. The
actress iound she lunched that day
with a girl on the lot—a girl she
bumped into by accident while hurry
ing into the studio—she dined with the
author next door who called an invi
tation to her across the sands as she
jumped Into her car before her beach
house. It happens that way here. Then
ihe was caught up ia a series of things,
and the girl sitting in the little bunga
low court at about $30 rental » month—
$30 she didn't have, by the way—de
cided to put a quick finish to it all.
As I said before, this place Isn't cir
cumstanced for gentle pity and consid
eration. Life is lived too hard here and
opportunities must be cashed while
warm.
When it became known that Eva
Tanguay was dying in Hollywood in
a forlorn little bungalow shack on a
back street her professional friends
helped plenty. Sid Grauman cpme to
the fore and so did others, glad to ι
help a friend of the old palmy days. j
Their intervention undoubtedly has |
saved her life. They have moved her to J
a comfortable apartment furnished by
them, she has adequate medical at
tention. she has that mental uplift of
knowing that her existence is a mat
ter of concern to some one In the world.
There are those who would have come
to the rescue had they known that
pretty Peg Entwhistle was tired of the
losing fight. But busy, rushing Holly
wood possibly didn't know.
Groucho Marx said a few days ago:
"You never see any one in Hollywood
unless they are working on your lot."
It is quite true. Actors, actresses
and writers live over a scattered area of
50 miles. Anywhere from Los Angeles
to Malibu, from San Fernando Valley
to Glendale and Pasadena. Studio
gates yawn for those lucky enough ιο
be working early In the morning and
close on them at nightfall. When you
don't see people professional Instinct
warns that they must be working in
some remote studio.
Sometimes, as in Peg Entwhistle's
case, they are living quietly with rela
tives, taking a little stroll down to
the village rental library to get a book
or going to buy a package of cigarettes
as the evening's diversion—it's the only
diversion of the financially lost in
Hollywood—where busy and successful
ones, smothered in early furs and click
ing diamond manacles, are hurrying
from the studio to the dinner party or
the premiere.
Sometimes they go to the black edge
of despair and come back smiling.
Mae Clarke, whose brilliant career top
pled suddenly, due to nervous collapse
fiom too much Hollywood, is achiev
ing her comeback at R-K-O and mak
ing a "go" of it. A score of people
branded her as "finished" in those
dismal days when she fought a long
bitter fight to achieve normalcy once
more.
Almost any player In Hollywood
could, If the truth be told, tell a tale
of moments when, like Peg Entwhistle.
the glittering lights of destruction
; beckoned more alluringly than the
lights of life.
