Louella Parsons on Judy Garland i wish Louella Parsons "GOOD NEWS" from a 1949 MODERN SCREEN magazine had indeed been correct . . . she died twenty years later of an accidental overdose of barbiturates. . " WHAT IS really the matter with Judy Garland? That is the question hurled at me everywhere I go. All right, let's get at it. Judy is a nervous and frail little girl who suffers from a sensitiveness almost bordering on neurosis. It is her particular temperament to be either walking in the clouds with excitement or way down in the dumps with worry. The least thing to go wrong leaves her sleepless and shattered. She has never learned the philosophy of "taking it easy." Last year, when she was on the verge of a nervous breakdown, she got in the habit of taking sleeping pills -- too many of them -- to get the rest she had to have. I'm not revealing any secrets telling you that. It was printed at the time. But for a highly emotional and highly strung girl to completely abandon sedatives, as Judy attempted to do when she realized she was taking too many, puts a terrific strain on the nervous system. The trouble is, Judy does not take enough time to rest. The minute she starts feeling better she wants to go back to work. She cried like a baby when she learned she was not strong enough to make The Barkleys of Broadway with Fred Astaire so soon following The Pirate and Easter Parade. "I'm missing the greatest role of my career," she sobbed. With Judy -- each role is always the greatest. Sometimes I believe Judy's frail little form is packed with too much talent for her own good. She is an artist, and I mean ARTIST, at too many things. She sings wonderfully and dances almost as well. And as for her acting -- well, listen to what Joseph Schenk, one of the really big men of our industry and head of 20th Century Fox (not Judy's studio) has to say. I sat next to Joe the night we saw Easter Parade. He told me, "Judy Garland is one of the great artists of the screen. She can do anything. I consider her as fine an actress as she is a musical comedy star. There is no drama I wouldn't trust her with. She could play such drama as Seventh Heaven as sensitively as a Janet Gaynor or a Helen Mencken." And I agree with every word Joe said. I am happy to tell you as I report the Hollywood news this month that Judy is coming along wonderfully, resting and getting back the bloom of health. Soon we will have her back on the screen -- her long battle with old Devil Nerves behind her and forgotten."

A Hat for Hedda Hopper     Spike Jones and His City Slickers My mom always mentioned Hedda Hopper but I never really knew who she was until I stumbled on this clip! Hedda Hopper (May 2, 1885 February 1, 1966) was an American actress and gossip columnist, whose long-running feud with friend turned arch-rival Louella Parsons became at least as notorious as many of Hopper's columns.

Thomas Ince Scandal 1924 One of Hollywood's most enduring and juicy scandals occurred on November 19, 1924. On that date producer/director Thomas Ince died suddenly on The Oneida, William Randolph Hearst's luxury yacht. Ince and several other celebrities were aboard the boat for a belated get-together for Ince's 42nd birthday. The official police report says Ince died of a heart attack. However, most Hollywood historians think the truth was more sinister. For years stories circulated that Ince had been shot to death by a jealous and enraged Hearst. One version has Ince getting way too friendly with Hearst's mistress, Marion Davies. Another version has Charlie Chaplin getting caught in the act with Marion--and Ince being accidentally shot by Hearst with a bullet meant for Chaplin. Chaplin's secretary stated she saw Ince being carried out of the yacht with a bullet hole in his head. The first edition of the next day's Los Angeles Times declared that Ince had been shot to death. Later editions of the newspaper had all references to gunplay expunged--an indication of how powerful Hearst was. Ince's body was quickly cremated, eliminating any chance his remains could be exhumed. Louella Parsons, a small-time entertainment writer from New York, was also aboard The Oneida. Immediately after this incident, she became a star writer in Hearst's syndicated newspaper chain. Was she rewarded for maintaining her silence about what happened on The Oneida that fateful day?
