Marion Davies was a film star in early years of Hollywood. She obtained and maintained stardom as a result of her relationship with wealthy newspaper publisher, William Randolph Hearst. Heast built himself a grandious castle in the coastal foothills of California, today known as 'Hearst Castle.' There his estranged wife did not venture. Instead castle mistress Davies along with Hearst played regular hosts to Hollywood's elite, stars like Cary Grant and Charlie Chaplin. Ms. Davies was endlessly indulged by Mr. Hearst, who was many years her senior. It is believed that while he provided starring film roles for Ms. Davies, his manipulation of her film career kept her true comedian actress talents from being recognized. Living at Heast Castle was a grand adventure for the twosome and life was fun. Always loving and devoted to one another, when Heast died, the family shut out Ms. Davies from all further contact with the Hearsts. But when W. R. Hearst was alive, Ms. Davies life was grand. This story is a fascinating account of one person who made her life choices without regrets.
