Interesting. Chaplin was a regular guest at Hearst Castle. I guess it all went very wrong.

"The Cat's Meow" is a great movie about this. Think I am going to stream it again, even though I've seen it way to many times. The screen writer of started following me on Twitter, because I would tweet bout it.

Hearst was trying to shoot Chaplin who was either having an affair or trying to have an affair with Marion Davies. Or at least that's what Hearst thought, and he shot Ince instead - or so the story goes.

Again, Hollywood Babylon by Kenneth Anger 'splains it all...and people said this guy was nuts, guess not so much.

W.R. Hearst was also part of setting up Roscoe Arbuckle for the "murder" of Virginia Rappe, he confessed as much to Buster Keaton, RA's best friend. Andy Edmonds' "Frame-Up" and Greg Merritt's "Room 1219" thoroughly debunk that falsehood. I only wish lazy writers would quit referring to the blameless Roscoe as a murderer. He was exonerated, and apologized to, by the jury at his THIRD trial.

Also, Marion Davies sold off a ton of her belongings to rescue the overspending W.R. Hearst from bankruptcy in the late 30s. She was at his side while he was dying years later, until his kids had a doctor give her a sedative. When she awoke, he was dead and she was subsequently barred from his funeral and any contact with the Hearst family IIRC.

I knew that Charlie Chaplin has some intriguing secrets.

Count Jerkula said...

Davies was 27 when Ince was murdered. Chaplin wasn't trying to bang that old bag.

Alexandria Anna said...

Oh hey Count, You're back, nice to see You.

Count Jerkula said...

Hello, Double A. Hope yer holidays were good.

Alexandria Anna said...

Yes, very. Thank You Count! Hope yer holidays were good as well!

Not to mention the character assassination Hearst committed on Bruce Ismay...that people still believe to this day: the only reason being they had met years before and didn’t take to each other, and Ismay didn’t pander to the press.

I know Patricia Lakes daughter. She is definitely a Hearst. She too was told the rumours about her grandmother & Chaplin

BTW Hearst was also in cahoots with Harry Anslinger in the 1930’s to make sure Cannibas was outlawed to the Nth degree.
Hearst made sure it got bad press.
Hemp production got shut down, all the better for Hearst’s lumber empire

@Count: I've been inquiring of your disappearance. Wondering if you may have been in lock-up. Willingly or unwilling, of course.

Count Jerkula said...

Vie Zeen: no, just got busy and out of the habit of CDAN fot a bit.
