  "She was a winner, Who became a doggie’s dinner…” — Nick Lowe   Would a dog-loving movie star leave her pooch to starve? Memorialized in Kenneth Anger’s Hollywood Babylon and in the eponymous pop song, Marie Prevost is best-known today as a overly-nasal actress who killed herself without anticipating that her pet dachshund would get hungry after days of not being fed.

A sex scene that has been debated, cursed and praised for its real and explicit portrayal of two women being intimate.
