  • Writer David Stenn stumbled across the shocking story of Patricia Douglas and MGM around the time he was finishing his biography of Jean Harlow, and he immediately sprang into action.

  • [Girl 27] not without fascination, in part because he's dug up extraordinary footage that features Douglas and her attacker. He also dug up Douglas herself, and it's her story that dominates the movie.

    Interesting topic but terrible storytelling.

    Raining on the idea of the golden age of Hollywood, this is the story of a young girl who is raped at an MGM party, whose name the studio smears and libels, and who subsequently disappears.

    A compelling and a sad story, but at least Patricia Douglas was alive long enough to be able to tell her story. I was completely appalled at how ebverything and everyone was against this woman. It makes a person wonder how many times this actuaklly happened in which it didn't get reported especially with the character assassination that Patricia Douglas had endured.

    Stern's material falls a little short of being sufficient for a full length documentary. While Douglas's case is compelling and what happened to her reprehensible, the more important story is how the corruption in our capitalist status quo infiltrates the judicial system. Of particular interest is the illustration this story (one of many) provides of how utterly corrupt the film industry is and how they control LA and CA. As anybody who lives here understands, the primary directive of the authorities is to protect the film industry and the rich assholes who control it, other industries and customary functions being secondary. Also of interest is the degree to which aspiring actresses were required to whore themselves to the undeserving immigrant scoundrels who run the industry. (Not a lot has changed.) As far as Douglas's legal ordeal is concerned, since somebody in her position has no chance of receiving justice, it would have behooved her to ram a 9 inch hat pin up the nose or through the ear of the swarthy subhuman creep who attacked her. For some additional perspective concerning over-privileged, undeserving heels who just have to press the envelope, see <I>Roman Polanski: Wanted And Desired</I> to better understand the reasons for his seemingly prima faice unjust treatment by our legal system.
