A Speedlight For a Star

Marion Davies was born in Brooklyn in 1897.Upon leaving school she found herself in demand as a model for famous painters of the day.By the time William Hearst, America's most famous publisher,met her she had already made a name for herself on the Broadway stage.During the next ten years she appeared in twenty-nine films.In the early twenties,she and Hearst moved their company,Cosmopolitan Productions,to California and joined forces with MGMayer studios.Her parties at the fabulous beach house Hearst had built at Santa Monica attracted the days biggest stars.Marion filmed a total of sixteen pictures between 1929 and 1937.The Hearst Corporation was in bad straits by the late thirties.Marion's selfless act of selling some of her jewelry enabled her to give Hearst a check for a million dollars to bail his ailing company out of debt.This was to be the disease which would eventually take Marion in 1961.- Kit:”PS:I love You” by Collab.designers (L.Griffin,L.Cumberland,MonicaDesigns,C.Lopez)
