~The Legend Of Hollywood~
~Plot Synopsis~
Idealistic scenario writer John Smith comes to Hollywood to gain recognition and takes up lodging
in Mrs. Rooney's modest boardinghouse, where a movie-struck girl, Mary Brown, falls secretly in
love with him. When his story is rejected by film companies, he fills seven glasses with wine, one of
which is poisoned; moving them about and thus not knowing which is lethal, he drinks one a day. As
the last is consumed, he receives a check in the mail, but by chance Mary has replaced the poisoned
glass. All ends happily.
