The setting, a cottage in the shadow of the Hollywood sign is akin to a Grimm’s fairy tale. Howard and Austin captured in a tangle of wild roses. Its thorny occupant the ‘golden-curls’ childlike Mary Philbin star of Phantom of the Opera (1925) hiding in the shadows within. Not pleased, Mary refuses to talk adamant that she would not tell her film star tales. But by her not revealing, she is revealing and the boys leave her frosty presence for the warmth of the Hollywood sun.
