May Miles Minter (1902-1984): With a relatively short movie career during the silent film era, of which very few intact films survive,Mary Miles Minter could have wound up like hundreds of forgotten movie actresses from the early days of film.However,she remains well known to film historians,as well as true crime buffs,because of her involvement in one of the earliest Hollywood scandals.Many people are still fascinated with the unsolved murder of William Desmond Taylor.A brilliant director for Paramount Films,as well as one of the fair-haired boys of the Hollywood crowd,his murder in 1922 shocked the nation.On the heals of earlier scandals involving the movie industry,the added attention of a homicide did not please the studios.Followed by more negative publicity surrounding the premature deaths of personalities such as Wallace Reid, Jeanne Eagels,Alma Rubens and Barbara LaMarr,the early film industry found itself in the crosshairs of an outraged public.- Kitam Lefors: “Rose Garden”
