About this scrapbook page:
Mary Miles Minter (1902-1984)was a child star who was dominated by her mother.At the age of 5 she first appeared on the stage in the play "Cameo Kirby".From that time on she worked steadily without a single vacation.Her salary, which started at $150 per week in 1915,increased to $2250 per week(1920).At that time she also became involved with Taylor but it is not known whether Taylor was looking out for his biggest star or if there was any real romance.Then everything crumbled.1922:Taylor was shot
Design credits:
to death in his Hollywood bungalow.His unsolved murder was one of Hollywood's major scandals.Though she was never considered a suspect in the murder,when the public learned of Mary's involvement with a man who had questionable dealings with women and was more than twice her age,they boycotted her films.The discovery of her belongings in Taylor's bungalow effectually killed her career in pictures.By the next year she had moved out of the home she shared with her mother and was out of pictures forever.
