Miss Itsy-Poo of 1922

Mark and I just love Mae Murray. Her story's tragic and very "Sunset Boulevard" though her tall-tale-telling has only added confusion to her legacy. From one of Hollywood's biggest stars to being arrested on a park bench for vagrancy, poor Mae was the original true Hollywood story.

'Step aside, peasants! Let the Princess Mdivani pass!’ she demanded imperiously of the nurses who came forward to help her into the hospital.

luckily she helped found the Actor's Home - where she ended up with a trunk of memoribiia and an obstinant narcissistic regal air.
"Get out of my way, peasants!"

nice that we can visit her humble grave site at Valhalla Cemetary in NoHo. She lies beneath the Burbank Airport's passing jets, full of passengers all heading for someplace...important.

We remember dear Mae.
