DEATH CAME ON SWIFT WINGS

DEATH CAME ON SWIFT WINGS

This is "THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE WORLD", Olive Thomas.

She won a beauty contest in New York and was soon on the road to FAME and RUIN....

Louis Selznick, father of David, personally plucked her from the stage and planted her Rose upon the ALTAR of HOLLYWOOD.

Or so the story goes. She was actually a RISQUE ingenue in Florenz Ziefeld's "MIDNIGHT FROLICS", a decadent nudie show held atop the NEW AMSTERDAM THEATER in New York.

Only the most WEALTHY and FAMOUS were allowed into the FROLICS...

She signed with Harry Fox's INTERNATIONAL FILM COMPANY.....

She became an OVERNIGHT star and met her future HUSBAND and DOOM Jack Pickford, Brother of Mary, in her first picture "TOM SAWYER".

Men went CRAZY for her, absolutely WILD...Her current analogue would probably be SCARLET JOHANNSEN...

The constant ATTENTION bothered her...

She married Jack Pickford, Hollywood PARTY BOY and TABLOID SENSATION...

She became just as WILD as he, lived a whirlwind life, became LINDSAY LOHAN...

In August, 1920, the couple decided to go to PARIS to DRY OUT, only to find that PARIS was far, far more decadent than any city in America. You could get ANYTHING in 1920's Paris...

A few weeks after their arrival, following a Wild Night of partying, Olive was in a Paris hospital fighting for her life.

She had ingested her Husband's SYPHILIS madication, MERCURY BICHLORIDE, which is a Topical Medication....

It was a FATAL dose...

Do any of you remember the SID VICIOUS/NANCY SPUNGEON craziness? After SID stabbed her?

Same thing happened to Jack Pickford afterwards ...

Did he KILL her?

Did she commit SUICIDE?

Tragic ACCIDENT?

HOLLYWOOD was NEVER the same afterward.

A rigid MORALS CLAUSE was inserted into EVERY new FILM contract as a DIRECT RESULT of the LIFE and DEATH of OLIVE THOMAS....or OLIVERETTA ELAINE DUFFY.

Death by MERCURY POISONING. And it doesn't take much. TOSS OUT those broken THERMOMETERS!
