In this chapter, Mae is confronted by family she had publicly written off. She kept the family afloat financially, but stopped short of helping her brother find work in the studios. The chapter examines Mae's dislike of motion picture censorship and highlights numerous examples of how she dealt with those who criticized her. The chapter documents the collapse of the Murray-Leonard marriage and concludes with Mae being selected to play Sally in The Merry Widow.
