What if A Murdering Woman married a Murdering Man?

Brigadier General George G. Gatley was serving at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas when his second daughter Dorothy was born in 1902. Dorothy Walton Gatley grew up to act on Broadway and in cinema as Ann Harding. The ash blonde with soulful blue eyes was most famous as an elegant aristocratic lady on screen. Her hair was usually wrapped in a bun, but when she let her hair down it flowed past her waist. Her on-screen image of a high-brow gentlewoman did not match her real-life personality.

When Ann Harding decided to make acting a career, her father told her that she was certainly on “the inevitable road to Hell.” Ann Harding married actor Harry Bannister, and in true Hollywood fashion, her career blossomed while his career shriveled and died. They decided to part after six years.

Her mentor, movie director Jasper Deeter, said that her success was due to her ability to hide her childish and stubborn temperament. She had a passionate, free-spirited attitude that led her to fall out of love with her husband before their divorce and have torrid affairs with film director Dudley Murphy and ribald author Gene Fowler, who were both married at the time. Soon to be ex-husband Harry Bannister threatened to disclose her affairs during the divorce unless she would give him a percentage of her future earnings and the custody of their daughter.

Unable to win in the court of public opinion, Ann left Hollywood for the stage and film opportunities in England, appearing in this British movie, regarded as one of her best performances. In this story she is a young British working girl who suddenly comes into a fortune, and soon meets a gold-digging man who convinces her to fall madly in love with him. Unfortunately, he is more than a gigolo, he is a demented killer. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
