Marion Davies in 1930
Not a bad comedienne, she was catapulted into stardom beyond her dramatic abilities
when she became the obsession of publishing tycoon William Randolph Hearst in 1919.
Orson Welles parodied the affair in his classic "Citizen Kane," 1941.
After Hearst fell into financial decline in 1937, so did Davies' career, but she retired wealthy.
